“As an African American artist, I initially wanted to capture more people of color in a more positive light in contrast to the current events. I just knew if I could capture the emotions and inner beauty of this particular model on canvas, it would speak to people the same way it spoke to me while painting the portrait. They help to define my final works.” – Dominic Avant
