Paul Oxborough trained at Minneapolis College of Art and Design. His work has been seen in numerous group and solo exhibitions in London and New York and was selected for the BP Portrait Award Exhibition in 2005 and 2007.

The portrait is of Stefon Alexander, a Minnesota-based hip-hop artist known as P.O.S.. Alexander was a willing model and participated in several sittings. The strong top-lighting was chosen to mimic that used for P.O.S.’s stage performances while the portrait aims to show his strong personality.
