Rudy Shepherd is a self-proclaimed healer. Sometimes he administers his treatments wearing a black bodysuit and boulder-shaped mask, other times his salve choice is watercolour paint. And his patient is American society, sickened by the endemic problems of racism and violence.

He has painted more than 400 watercolour portraits of individuals from the news cycle ever since, in a uniform 12 by 9-inch format that makes the series look like a tragic yearbook page.: - Karen Chernich, The Art Newspaper 11/6/2020
