Raised in Manhattan by his father, an attorney, and artist mother, Titus Kaphar didn’t begin writing until he was in his early 20s. He hadn’t found his tribe yet, he said. “I was a good kid, I didn’t make any h-o-s—,” he joked, “but it wasn’t, you know, I really loved writing. I don’t know. I just got addicted to it and I got enough experiences to write on my own.”

Titus began to gain notice in the fine-art world with his 2010 work “Stuffed Winter Squares,” presented in a group show at the Gagosian Gallery in New York. He went on to become a featured artist at the Design Miami show and in 2014, “A Capella,” his dialogue-laced series of sculptural pieces about language, became the solo artist featured in the Avery Fisher Hall arts series at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This year, he was named one of the top 30 emerging artists in America by ArtReview. Now, he has turned his attention toward his most poignant work yet.
