To show our appreciation for emerging artists, we’re going to highlight a talented up-and-coming artist every day this week!
Today, we’re focusing on Jamaican artist Kamar Thomas, who challenges the relational and contextual construction of identity through a series of oil-painted self portraits. The artist first covers his face in paint, and then takes a photograph, edits it, and finally uses that image as a reference to produce a painting.
Thomas is represented by New York’s Susan L. Halper Fine Arts.
