Article Excerpt: “…His exclusive work in partnership with New River Fine Art on Las Olas is thanks to its president, Lisa Burgess. “I gave her 15 pieces, and she sold everything,” shares Cotton.
“She’s keeping me super busy, and it’s fun.”
At New River Fine Art, his contemporary artwork is on display, including his series titled Split Portraits. The juxtapose art features the likeness of an icon—those who inﬂuenced the culture and Cotton’s career—in black and white. “On the other side, depending on who the artist or the icon is, I then paint that in a dimension of how they see and view the world and explore that side,” says Cotton.
To date, he’s created originals of Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso, Keith Haring, Abraham Lincoln, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, who’s known for his inﬂuence on street art and hip-hop. “I think the work speaks for itself,” he says. “I’m happy the art is selling.”
