Portrait of my granddad inspired by Kehinde Wiley's work. My granddad came to England from Jamaica in 1962 as part of the Windrush generation. He married my English grandmother and raised her three children as his own. The picture shows the juxtaposition of a Jamaican man living in a female dominated, feminine English home.
