Hear from the artist who built a national reputation with his hyper-realistic paintings of modern-day African-Americans such as hipsters, divas, and basketball players – including the painting Noir on view in 30 Americans. His beautifully decked out subjects capture the fashion sensibilities of the 1970s. By extension, they also reveal the ways people choose to present themselves to the world. Meet Hendricks and learn about his career and how he utilizes his art to get people’s attention.
