Stop animation “speed” drawing by Jonathon Linton:
Hyper realist portraits by Kehinde Wiley: world-us-canada-19454025
In your comments, consider:
Why does Wiley re-contextualize the people in his portraits? How and why does Wiley incorporate art history into his art?
Explain the difference between a portrait that just captures a person’s likeness (like Linton’s) and one which makes a point about class, ethnicity, contemporary culture, or social interaction (like Wiley’s).
What type of portrait do you prefer?
Are there any artists that might influence you in making your self portrait or a background that you might add?
