Description

Long before the dawn of social media, daily news was delivered to your doorstep, or could be readily found under the lean arms of eager young entrepreneurs on the busy streets of sprawling metropolises across the country. Award-winning artist Kadir Nelson paints a young newsboy proudly perched at his early morning post at a busy Harlem intersection during the 1920s. The air is crisp and steam rises from the bowels of the city whilst the morning sun peaks over brownstones and apartment buildings. The African-American newspaper, The Amsterdam News, appears oversized against the youngster’s slight frame; his hardened expression offers a glimpse into the life and work ethic akin to Big City newsboys.

This is a limited edition giclee on water color paper. Ships signed and numbered by the artist with a certificate of authenticity. Image Size: 24x20 inches, Paper Size: 30x26 inches.

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.
