Colors of Character: An Artist’s Journey to Redemption- review

The documentary #ColorsofCharacterMIN: An Artist’s Journey to Redemption shares the extraordinary journey of prolific artist Steve Skipper. With no formal training, Skipper has broken down walls of racism in the world of fine art. God radically saved Skipper when he was a member of a notorious street gang, and immediately his life was transformed. Focused on his new-found faith and his talent for painting, Skipper faithfully seized opportunities that only God could have provided and he quickly began gaining notoriety in the sports world for his meticulous artistic style of super-realism. Now, Skipper is continuing his journey by painting the stories of the pioneers of the Civil Rights movement. Colors of Character shares interviews with key figures in Steve’s life, including sports figures, faith leaders, and civil rights icons; details on his paintings and techniques; and his powerful personal story of redemption.


Skipper became a struggling artist, and struggle he did. He wasn’t making much money perfecting his art and had a full-time job to support his family. His first significant work was of the Biblical story of Samson. Halfway through the painting, Skipper’s hand was severely crushed while working his regular job at a cast iron mill. He believed his career as a painter was over, but God had other plans

 His career in sports painting began when he was hired to draw sketches of a local high school’s baseball team, which paid very littler per sketch. That simple job led to more significant ones, Skipper found it challenging to find work because he was black. Racism ran rampant in the South, and making a living like his white contemporaries was nearly impossible. God came through and opened doors to painting portraits for the University of Alabama, the Dallas Cowboys, the PGA, and NASCAR, to name a few.
