Cameron Portland is an artist born and raised in South London. Portland’s work is self-described as urban-abstract-expressionism and revolve around his identity and experience as a Black male, specifically in London.
Portland’s caricature work is not unlike Kara Walker’s exaggerated silhouette cutouts as he explains that his work is recognizable through this enhancement of facial features much like Walker’s works.
Portland’s practice is strong through various manifestations—contextually, color palette-wise, and, most strikingly, its brushwork. Portland is currently based in London.
