1000 Portraits is an ongoing project in which brothers Taiwo and Kehinde attempt to illustrate 1000 people from all walks from countries across the globe. These portraits can take shape in the form of paintings, drawings, collages, mixed-media, photography and everything in-between. . The projects root lie in not only resurrecting a steadily less prevalent art form but also giving people who may have never considered to get one made – the opportunity to do so. The very essence of the 1000 Portraits project is to make each portrait not only a reflection of the sitter but as unique as them too.
