On a warm summer night, dressed for an evening on the town, a beautiful young well-to-do sophisticate, whose features sing of Africa and Asia, enjoys a cup of tea in her cool green sitting room. She casually holds a fan and casts her gaze past the decoratively framed mirror toward a classic wooden staircase. Inviting a dance of red, brown, and green hues, decorative patterns swirl throughout the composition—the intricate lace of her dress; a red velvet chair; a Persian rug; the window shade and flower arrangement atop a baby grand piano. Each element calls the viewer’s focus to land on the delicate strap over her shoulder, and toward her thoughtfully distant gaze.

“Green Tea” by Kadir Nelson is part of a series of paintings celebrating the Harlem Renaissance era. It sings a song of harmony between colors, patterns, distant cultures, and 1920s style.

Kadir Nelson

Kadir Nelson began drawing at the age of three, displaying artistic acumen before he could write or spell. “I have always been an artist,” Nelson explains. “It’s part of my DNA.” At age eleven, Kadir Nelson was apprenticed by his uncle Michael Morris, an artist and art instructor. “My uncle gave me my foundation in art,” says the artist. Kadir Nelson experimented with several different media and later began painting in oils at the age of sixteen under the encouragement and tutelage of both his uncle and high school art teacher. He began entering his paintings in art competitions and ultimately won an art scholarship to study at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Upon graduating with honors, Kadir Nelson began his professional career as an artist, publishing his work and receiving commissions from publishers and production studios such as Dreamworks, Sports Illustrated, Coca-Cola, The New York Times and Major League Baseball, among others.
