Cal Massey is one of the few artists who has been able to support himself throughout his entire life with art alone. His career started as a child drawing at age 4. After graduating from the Hussain School of Art, he began work at Marvel Comics illustrating science fiction and war comics.
He is well known for his commemorative pieces especially those created during his tenure at the Franklin Mint.
In his figurative works, he portrays African Americans as figures of determination, beauty, dignity, and strength.
He drew a lifelong inspiration from the universe-the stars and planets and created a series-"Universal Mystery: An Abstract View" which reflected this inspiration.
