Painter whose sole intention is to get more images of black people in galleries. To do this he realised that he needed to be a good painter so he becomes better at painting by copying the styles of other painters i.e. rococco large scale historical scenes, impressionist plein air. You can see it in all his paintings, a need and desire to develop – so anything goes. FIDGETY ARTISTS. He has, as a result become an excellent technical painter [on top of his powerful image making skills]. When making a painting, he will make the clothes / costumes for the models to wear and will get the flowers in and then sets it all up with mannequins as opposed to models.
He has a constant conversation with the History of Art and will take anything from a few weeks to a decade to complete a painting.
