About the Program

San Francisco artist Hugh Leeman uses public space, the internet, and interactions with strangers on the street to craft a powerful portrait of the twenty-first century. Leeman will discuss street art activism using QR codes in art to help the poor, and creating portraits with carbon soot emissions. Workshop also includes a hands-on lesson on Leeman’s self-taught and Kehinde Wiley-inspired style of creating portraits.
