Henry Taylor - African American Artist Profile - W Magazine & New York Times (2012)

Henry Taylor, who lives in Los Angeles, paints fast, loose and sensuously on canvases great and small. Portraiture is his work's center of gravity. His subjects include friends, relatives, acquaintances from the art world and off the street, and heroes from the worlds of sports and politics. Along the way he takes in downbeat cityscapes patrolled by cop cars and envisions allegories of spiritual trauma in the Land of the Free.

Filmmaker Claudio Conti turns his Camera on unconventional but truly original African American Artist Henry Taylor for this Documentary Portrait currently airing on Wmag.com as part of a series on LA Artists for W Magazine's November 2011 Art Issue.
