Derek Fordjour

Derek Fordjour is an interdisciplinary artist whose work grapples with race, political insubordination, inequality and American society. Fordjour explores these complex themes through imagery from carnivals, parades and other celebratory settings.

In 2018, Fordjour rose to prominence after he was commissioned by the Whitney Museum to create a mural near its building in New York City. The mural, Half Mast (2018), shows a colorful crowd of bustling people—some reduced to rifle targets, others holding condolence balloons and teddy bears—as a commentary on the United States’ mass shooting epidemic.

Fordjour is a graduate of Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, and earned a Master’s Degree in Art Education from Harvard University and an MFA in painting from Hunter College.
