Conceited is a Brooklyn, New York City rapper famous for his witty battle rapping and a viral meme of his face which took off in 2016. The meme is often paired with feelings of objection, skepticism, and anxiety. Using oil paint, Brejenn layered a print of the Conceited meme into her portrait of a traditionally white representation of Jesus Christ. Thus, she shows her skill and purposely interrupts it with her humor.
