About the artist

Conrad Egyir

Conrad Egyir (born 1989) transforms the Black sitters in his portraits using paint, glitter, and found materials. These vibrant works on canvases shaped like large-scale postcards, stamps, and perforated notebook pages combine the graphics and visual elements of Pop art with the narratives of history painting, and he often alludes to art historical moments, explicitly referencing Charles White, Kerry James Marshall, and Kara Walker. Informed by iconography from his home country of Ghana along with other African cultures, religious motifs, and pop culture, Egyir explores themes of identity politics, community, ethics, American culture, and migration in his work.
