Artist Replete presents "Tommie Smith" by Chicago artist Roger J. Carter. A portrait of Tommie Smith recreated using both miniature and regular sized toy soldiers.
The Black Power salute photo, one of the most influential protest images of all time, was captured over 50 years ago when Tommie Smith stepped onto the world stage during the Summer Olympics in Mexico City. It was Oct. 16, 1968.

During the spring of 2020, South Side, Chicago artist Roger J. Carter formed a new body of work through relentless experimentation. He gradually built a style that spoke to his personal taste and inspired everyone around him.
Using toy soldiers, the artist has created captivating portraits of musicians, activists and writers. The soldiers, previously looked at as nothing more than a toy, took on a new meaning, as part of a greater expression.
"For me I've always been political in my art. I've always done revolutionary characters and rebels. So in that regard, I consider my art as a form of protest.My Art Is My Protest."
