Artist Paul Oxborough honored for painting of P.O.S.

City Pages brings to our attention this news piece about artist Paul Oxborough, whose work was recently accepted into the British Portrait Awards for his striking portrait of local hip hopper and rising star, P.O.S. CP was tipped off by the artist's daughter, Allegra Oxborough, whose name you may recognize from the P.O.S. tune "Optimist": "I made this beat for Allegra Oxborough/She taught me how to do the thing with the cups."

A solo exhibition of Oxborough's paintings are currently on display at the Eleanor Ettinger Gallery in Soho, with a definite nod to the Twin Cities that includes paintings of First Ave coat check workers, Mickey's Diner and more. You can view the entire exhibit online here. Read the City Pages article here.
