James Baldwin’s inspiring writings helped to create this artwork. I wanted to capture his demeanor, as I imagined it, while he wrote his essays and novels.


Guided by my influences of Rembrandt’s ambient lighting technique, and Charles White’s character expressions, defined for me, Baldwin’s internal battle of making sense of the complicated conditions in which Black people live.


Medium: Pastel Chalk, Colored Pencils
