Wall Therapy: Ernest Shaw Jr.

For this years summer edition of Wall Therapy up in Rochester, NY the curatorial theme is portraiture with one the first walls completed by Ernest Shaw Jr. As an established artist within the Baltimore community I was super excited to see him participating in this program and bringing his old school approach in mural painting to this lively mural event. In this beautiful portrait of the late Jimi Hendrix he shows us his wonderful use of saturated color, drawing from the rich history of African and African American figurative art.
