‘Little Girl O’ is a portrait of Oprah Winfrey as a little girl.The original assemblage is made up of the 64 books from the ‘Oprah Book Club’. A stencil has been made for each book, and then hand painted by the artist.
This piece seeks to portray Little Girl Oprah, growing up impoverished, abused, troubled; and against all odds, triumphing, and making something of her life. The books represent not only her belief in education and learning; but also,her desire to share and to give back. To influence as well as inspire others to grow.
