Bisa Butler
Dad, 2010
Butler created this portrait of her father, Dr. Zachary Yamba, in 2010. “I admire my father a lot. He was an African immigrant from Ghana in the 1960s,” Bisa Butler has said. “And, you know, every parent says, ‘I walked 10 miles to school,’ but he literally did walk 10 miles to school. And eventually became a college president.” Butler’s father, President Emeritus of Essex County College is the longest serving college president in New Jersey. He wears a suit, tie and white shirt. Around his head is a band including gold stars, moons and diamond shapes. In the Ghanaian culture these symbols connote a reliable, wise leader and recall a traditional crown worn by an Ashanti chief. Butler uses Kente cloth for her background, the expensive fabric reserved for royalty.

Basquiat – Black Lives Matter, 2015
Butler calls Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) “my favorite artist, Brooklyn’s own native son and prodigy.” Basquiat, the son of a Haitian American father and a Puerto Rican mother, first gained notoriety as a teenage graffiti poet and musician. By 1981, at the age of twenty, he had turned from spraying graffiti on the walls of buildings in Lower Manhattan to selling paintings in SoHo galleries, rapidly becoming one of the most accomplished artists of his generation. Basquiat was a key figure in the 1980s and his artistic accomplishments have significance for twentiethcentury art as a whole. Inspired by his own heritage, Basquiat was interested in music, language and Afro- Caribbean imagery.
