To be young, gifted and black...

Oh, what a lovely precious dream. 

I'm a week late with this one but very glad I found it - Huffington Post did a piece on 30 contemporary Black artists you should know. 

These artists are fantastic and should be appreciated past just Black History Month. EVERY month should be Black History Month. Same goes for all other groups. 

I'm very happy to see a Kehinde Wiley shout out. He's been one of my favorites since I saw his work at MAM a few years back. Same goes for Hank Willis Thomas. For my money, they're two of the reigning kings of contemporary art and totally deserve more of a spotlight. Check them out!

About Me

My photo
I love to read about linguistics, behavioral economics, theory and philosophy. I listen to music some might call outdated, write satirical and high testosterone plays, consume too much caffeine and ruthlessly defend modern and contemporary art.
