    When there's no possibility of a negative critique--as is the case with art created by under-represented minorities--all we can do is smile and applaud.

      yooser naime well, it’s good that we have under-represented minorities to not critique as you are no longer permitted to create art outside your racial identity. We need to make sure that racial boundaries are strictly in place as this will only help with inclusion and understanding.

    Boring just like Kehinde Whiley. Media kiss ups. Basquiat is still light years ahead of them

    Affirmative action artist. She sucks but no one will say it due to her race.

    My she is fantastic at capturing the beauty of those everyday people so realistic... I hope someday she could do that for me and my family.

    Simply spectacular. Sure hope Serena and Meghan are listening since she wouldn't need to ask me twice.
