Dr. Martin Luther King
MLK. Layering a 1957 civil rights comic with white paint, I use the negative space to create the image. I coordinate the background content with each painting so in this portrait, you can see the early part of Dr. King’s life story portrayed on the left including his religious upbringing, education and marriage to Coretta Scott. References to Rosa Parks and her activist work are featured as well.
