Here’s some background about the artists:

He is also proficient in painting and using color charcoal was learned. The art of Hamilton is taking the country by storm and he has achieved so much in just 4 short years, including taking home first place in BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® 2013 Artisan Series to now having his work appear on the set of the popular new hit TV series, Empire.
Born in San Pedro, California, and raised in Harbor City, Calif., Bibbs managed to work an eight-hour job and use his God-given talent in his spare time. But in 1991, Bibbs decided to leave his management position of 25 years, to form his publishing and distribution company, B Graphics and Fine Arts, Inc. Today, Bibbs is one of the top-selling artists in the country, and his business has grown to be one of the leaders in the African American art print market.
