Andrea H. Evans, Esq. and Ashley Deadwyler-Jones presents HBCU Excellence: Artist Calida Rawles

This series spotlights HBCU graduates who tell their inspiring stories. Let’s take a walk in Artist Calida Garcia Rawles’ shoes!

After taking a college tour of Spelman College, Calida made her choice to change the world and apply to Spelman! Calida Rawles received her B.A. in Art at Spelman College and her M.A. in Painting at New York University. She paints African-American women and men submerged in glistening water; each body swarmed by a flurry of bubbles, ripples, and refracted light. Her artwork can be found in the homes of celebrities and notable figures. Most recently, she painted the cover of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ book,The Water Dancer.
