In honor of Black History Month, San Antonio College is hosting an exhibition of acrylic paintings by Kaldric Deshon Dow, a San Antonio portrait painter originally from Houston. “Skin tone is so intricate,” Dow said. “You look at someone and say ‘he’s brown’, but I see the purples, reds, greens [and] blues. I see multiple tubes of paint.” “When I lived at home, I always had subjects — from my mom to my sisters.” “There will never be a roof on the depiction of skin tone, there is no cap.”
Born in 1990 in Houston Texas, Kaldric Dow is a leading African American artist of the generation of millennials. Dow studied at UTSA in the informal studio classes establishing strong drawing, perspective, and an understanding of art history. There, he absorbed the acute attention to skin tone and lighting, subsequently refining his own visual and conceptual vocabulary that emerged through his focus on the points of intersection between art history, representing a current culture, and the dynamics of color theory.
