"This work is from a series where I began examining and the exploration of religious imagery and its influence in portraiture. My work places black women and women of color in the posture of those of the renaissance era with byzantine era elements. To me, it's an opportunity to educate the uninformed about why it's important to have Blacks on stamps and researching the roles we’ve played in shaping America and history." – Tommy Mitchell
Tommy Mitchell was born in 1983 in Biloxi Mississippi. Self taught in his home of Virginia (Newport News), he honed his skills drawing everything from magazine covers, to comic and sports cards. Wanting to tune his attention to detail and depth Mitchell studied the masters of black and gray tattoo artists. Tommy’s work expresses a heightened sense of realism, captured in his subjects, exploring religious imagery and fashion photography elements.
