Rap artist Rick Ross presented with portrait by Harrisburg artist DIONN RENEE on BET’s 106 & Park
The presentation took play on Monday’s LIVE broadcast and was seen by millions
“It’s a privilege to work with someone of his stature,” says Renee. “Rick Ross is a phenomenal artist, and to be approached by his people was a real honor.”
Renee was selected to paint the mural of the First Couple in the Harrisburg office of President Obama’s re-election campaign. She is also known in celebrity circles for her paintings and photographs of such notable figures as Vice President Biden, Oprah Winfrey, poet laureate Maya Angelou (who has prominently displayed Renee’s portrait of her in her main office), Russell Simmons; TV and film figures (Tyra Banks, Tisha Campbell, Steve Harvey, Mehki Phifer, Chris Rock, Vanessa Williams, Davetta Sherwood, etc.); and musical artists (including Eve, Jeremih, Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj, Trey Songz, and more).
