When toyin ojih odutola told her parents she’d be having a solo show at manhattan’s whitney museum this fall, her mother cried. her father said, “whitney houston has a museum?” says the artist: “that’s what i love about my dad. you need that reality.” in 2012, she made a name for herself using markers and ballpoint pens to draw figures with skin so alive and fluid, it’s been described as resembling a weaving, or a galaxy. last year, she began a series informed by a fictional narrative: portraits from the collection of an imaginary duo of aristocratic husbands depicting individuals amid markers of luxury and wealth. link in bio to learn more about the watch-this-space collaborators @toyinojihodutola and @rjkhckly, and the rest of elle's 2017 women in art. || photo by henry leutwyler, styled by @emilybarnesstudio. tap for style credits.
