Mickalene Thomas (American, b. 1971) is a contemporary artist known for her work exploring the black urban experience as it pertains to the female gender. Her large-scale works, often embellished with rhinestones, enamel, and colorful acrylics, devolve into a series of assertive glances. Ultimately, her figural compositions provide a intercontextuality that references a mix of African patterns and contemporary politics.
