Black Hollywood Is Snapping Up Paintings by This Young Artist

Lena Waithe , Alicia Keys and Rich Paul are among the collectors of paintings by Corey Pemberton, whose show at L.A.'s UNREPD gallery is closing this weekend.

Pemberton had previously found success in the art world as a glassblower. But he had a suite of new multi-media figurative paintings he had completed and he figured he’d give it a shot by bringing them to the fair.“When I first moved here, the art scene felt — not impenetrable — I just didn’t know where my entry point was. But I was very familiar with this art fair scene. I had made a living for years with my glasswork, decorative objects for the home. I thought maybe I could do the same thing with my paintings. I didn’t sell anything; maybe I sold one piece all weekend. It felt like a failure in that sense. But I met Sarah. It turned out to be the best thing that’s ever happened for my career.”
