Vicksburg, MS artist Kennith Humphrey has gained national and international recognition, and in the process has realized his dream of being a professional painter. Asked to describe his art and the style in his paintings he explained:
"I don't call them paintings, I call them sketches because they capture a fleeting moment. My art is not realism, not finite, not exact. It is an escape from realism, an interpretation of the moment. I don't call it a certain style. It's free flowing, being myself. It's my quick interpretation. I want to paint people as they are at the moment."
The latest series of black and white mixed media paintings represent a departure from his usual colorful style.
