Diversifying Portraiture

Oxford University is currently investing in portraits which move away from the typical “white male” faces we see on most of the walls. I was delighted to be commissioned to make two of the portraits of this new series. Kumi Naidoo, a South African human rights activist, who used to be International Executive Director of Greenpeace and Reeta Chakrabarti the British news journalist, presenter and correspondent for BBC News.

These pictures were shown in an exhibition in the Weston Library in Oxford and are now permanently hung in Examination Schools.
