Amy Sherald, He was meant for all things to meet, 2022

Amy Sherald is having a moment. The American painter rose to celebrity in 2018 with her official portrait of former first lady Michelle Obama and later cemented her reputation with her lauded posthumous depiction of Breonna Taylor, the hospital worker who was shot and killed in 2020 by police officers who forced entry into her apartment. Now, in her first solo show in Europe, Sherald unveils a new suite of paintings of Black Americans. ‘My mission as an artist [is] to put more complex stories of Black life in the forefront of people’s minds,’ she has said. Among the works on display is this painting of a man in a green jumper with the number 22 on it. He is not shaped to be an athlete, but his confident stance and gaze draws you in, prompting you to wonder about his interior life, hopes and dreams.
