Paul Mpagi Sepuya bases his work in portraiture, storytelling, and homoerotic visual culture. He investigates the role of the studio as a social environment by staging photographs with his friends, partners, and lovers as subjects and employing mirrors and collage techniques. This unique print is part of the Figure series, and has never been shown or published until now. Sepuya received his BFA from New York University Tisch School of the Arts in 2004 and his MFA from the University of California Los Angeles in 2016. Sepuya has exhibited his work widely, including at the Artist Institute in New York, Franklin Art Works in Minneapolis, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, and The Studio Museum in Harlem. Public collections holding Sepuya’s work include the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, International Center of Photography in New York, Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin, Museum of Modern Art in New York, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, and Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Paul Mpagi Sepuya currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Sepuya participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program in July 2018.
