Commissioned Portrait of Paul Robeson at the Zimmerli Art Museum

I’m honored to have been asked to paint a portrait of Paul Robeson for the Paul Robeson Legacy Project, in commemoration of the centennial of his graduation from Rutgers University. Paul Robeson’s legacy as a global activist, scholar, singer, athlete, and actor is truly extraordinary. Many thanks to the Zimmerli Art Museum for this opportunity!

Thank you also to NJTV for interviewing me for this segment on Paul Robeson’s legacy and the exhibition. The exhibition is on view at the Zimmerli until April 28th.

Limited-edition prints || now available at Anthropologie

Limited edition prints of some of my work are now available at anthropologie online. The prints originally appeared in a limited edition book of paintings and text that I made for the 2015 LA Art Book Fair;  each portrait is accompanied by a typewritten excerpt from the author's work that I found particularly meaningful and resonant. Many thanks for making this happen zoe bios creative and anthropologie.
