Delfin Finley is an artist based in Los Angeles that paints representational portraits of people of color to address pervasive racial issues. A number of his impeccably realist works analyze the anxieties of his generation, highlighting subjects clad in heavy ropes that symbolize the difficult experiences that people of color continue to encounter.
Finley is now releasing his first-ever edition of prints featuring model and i-D contributing editor, Paloma Elsesser. The artist relayed on Instagram that he has received many requests for a print release, but “he never wanted to rush the process.” He added: “Waiting for the right time to make a print that I am extremely proud of was a priority for me.”
The print is part of an original painting included in his latest series. Measuring 23 by 23 inches, it will be released in a signed and numbered edition of 100 on Delfin’s website this July 31 at 12 p.m. PST.
