Day 18: Jeff Sonhouse

Jeff Sonhouse concentrates on themes of black masculinity in his striking paintings that often find his subjects donning menacing, multipatterned masks and vivid, dandy-like suits. At times focusing on iconic or controversial figures, Sonhouse has created portraits of Colin Powell, Michael Jackson, and Diddy. In 2008, Sonhouse broke the mode of depicting only men with his exhibition Pawnography, which included a portrait of former U.S. Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice.
