Yesterday, whilst researching images on the Internet, I came across an artist from Trinidad: Boscoe Holder is apparently well-known for his paintings of black Caribbean women but also of black male nudes. If you are not familiar with his work, take a look, it's good.
Many of Boscoe Holder's paintings can be viewed at the 101 Gallery:

The gallery also represents Boscoe Holder's brother: Geoffrey, whose work I particularly like.
