is an Ohio-born artist. Scheidly’s work unearths interesting social dynamics through its exploration of the cultural implications of colors. The artist paints realistic portraits of male world leaders and public figures, softening their hyper-masculine auras with a color palette of lilacs, pinks and magentas. Scheidly’s work draws attention to the biases coded in the imagery that surrounds us and the gendered implications of the visual signifiers of power.
