Hank Willis Thomas (artist)



Hank Willis Thomas is an American photo-conceptual artist. Thomas explores themes of identity, race, history, and pop culture in his work. Much of his artwork is inspired by events from the civil rights movement and his experience as a Black American.  Thomas is, in his own words, “fascinated with how history and culture are framed, who is doing the framing, and how these factors affect our interpretation of reality.” By altering familiar images, icons, and logos, Thomas raises questions about how media reflects and shapes popular opinion.
