Artist Inspiration: Bisa Butler
If you've seen Time Magazine's cover image of Porche Bennett-Bey for this year's "Guardian of The Year", you've already seen one example of Bisa Butler's astounding work.
As a painting major at Howard University, she began incorporating fabric into her work, until her process evolved into what you see here...a painting made entirely of fabric. Her portrait process incorporates historical research for images in National Archives; "I’m looking for things that spark something in me."
