STUDENT PROFILE

kyle marcus bryant

“My dream is to author and illustrate books. GW not only prepared me for that dream but matured me as an artist and a person. My instructors were real-world artists who knew what the art scene was really like out there. My work was featured in exhibitions, and I was introduced to contemporary artists like Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald who created the National Portrait Gallery paintings of, respectively, Barack and Michelle Obama. So now I’m picturing that dream and I’m thinking about all the things I can do and all the new experiences I can have. There’s nothing but good things coming for me.”
