Established in 1973, the "Second Generation Movement" began with "friends and family." The African American entrepreneurs were born during the 1950s and 60s. Several have painted over decades and can be known as the "Florida Highwaymen Historic Generation." Makeshift assembly-lines and trees are used as easels, back-yards, porches and garages for studio's; at times wet paint on Masonite is sold from the trunk of the car or the side of the road; all are 1950s handed-down traditions. "A make up of a few hand-picked inherited close friends, and descendants. The Florida Highwaymen Historic Generation is the most powerful extension, that transcends a history started by the "Florida Original Highwaymen Artists." A. J. Brown spearheaded the recognition of the Second Generation Movement. A. J. is an exceptional Second Generation artist herself.
Kelvin Hair, son of the legendary Al Hair, has begun to be recognized for his artistic ability. and his work is already gaining popularity. Certainly an excellent addition to a Highwaymen's collection. I believe that this particular work is the best of what he has produced to date, and rivals much of what the Original Florida Highwaymen have produced. How wonderful to see a Second Generation artist who has inherited so much talent from his father! I love how the poinciana clusters appear so life-like. The palette knife technique is expertly used.
