Khalif Tahir Thompson

Khalif Tahir Thompson is an African-American painter who has just graduated from The Yale School of Art.
His work is populated by black figures set in colourful, shimmering environments that sometimes resemble patchworks verging on abstraction.
Yet each of his works seems rooted in reality.
The artist manages to imbue his figures with a genuine psychological identity, revealing a meticulous study of the human being.

In this way, he reveals himself to be an outstanding portraitist. In his groups of figures, some are posed, while others are taken on the spot, without paying any attention to the painter.
All of which adds to the feeling of immediacy of an artist in love with reality.
Elsewhere, Khalif Tahir Thompson likes to depict isolated figures dozing in an atmosphere of serenity, despite the obvious vulnerability of his characters.
The artist's works are also filled with mysterious letters and numbers.
These multiple signs echo the diversity of materials used by the artist.
Painting in oils and acrylics, the artist creates his own papers, which he then applies to the canvas.
He likes to mix pearls, fabric, velvet, newspaper and leather to create wonderful material effects.
This is the first reference monograph on the practice of this very young painter whose work is already prolific.
