Bisa Butler is an American artist known for her stunning portraits created entirely from fabrics that she layers and stitches together. Her works often depict scenes from African American life and history, and often contain African-print fabrics. One of America’s most innovative contemporary artists, her work was recently displayed in an exhibition of the same title held at the Art Institute of Chicago.
