Upon closer inspection, we see that the silhouette was cut from paper printed with white models. Britto says, "By re-contextualizing images familiar to the observers of my work I am able to express ideas and themes that I feel passionately about.

Britto says, "Much of my work is about being a person of color in America, and the misconceptions and assumptions that go along with that. My art allows me to make people more politically and culturally aware, by using the customary as metaphor."Read Less
