And he has one of them new-fangled wikipedia entries, too:

Kalup Linzy (born July 23, 1977) is an American video and performance artist currently living and working in Brooklyn. Born in Clermont, Florida, Linzy graduated from the MFA program at the University of South Florida in 2003. He also attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture video art workshop, and in 2005 received a grant from the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation. Recently, he was named a Guggenheim fellow for 2007-2008. Linzy's best known work is a series of video art pieces satirizing the tone and narrative approach of television soap opera.[citation needed] Linzy performs most of the characters himself, many of them in drag. Linzy also performs on stage using many of the same characters. His work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Art in America, and Artforum.
