Herman is part of a portrait series called Omniscient Narrator in which the artist takes on a second role— “author”—as text adds a layer of psychological commentary to the image. As a subject, Herman Elvy has an open face and life-embracing attitude that I tried to reflect in his portrait. A Jamaican immigrant with his own business and four highly accomplished children, Mr. Elvy embodies the possibility of the American Dream.
