Ibrahim is the quintessential Renaissance man. A self described “intellectual philosopher”, Ibrahim is a multi-talented artist/painter/martial arts master who also just happens to be one of the most in-demand black models in the industry.

Ibrahim is the quintessential Renaissance man. A self described “intellectual philosopher”, Ibrahim is a multi-talented artist/painter/martial arts master who also just happens to be one of the most in demand black models in the industry.

Known for his sensual look and killer body, he books top campaigns and walks the runway for high profile designers. Living in an artist’s collective commune style building in Brooklyn, Ibrahim and his Panamanian fashion designer/nanny girlfriend run in the downtown art scene crowd.

When not painting in his studio, Ibrahim paints “live” at events all around the city and is currently prepping for his first solo art show. Never one to believe something just because you tell him it is so, Ibrahim is constantly questioning life’s greatest mysteries when not flying off to Milan for runway and editorial work.

Blowing the stereotype that male models are “dumb” out of the water, Ibrahim is a soulful, sensitive young man who never fails to give a second chance or help out a friend in need. A free spirit, Ibrahim has a tendency to say whatever pops into his mind, even if it means confronting Wendell when their completely mismatched personalities clash.

Can Ibrahim indulge his great passion for art and earn enough to make an actual living at it? Can he be cool with Wendell when business brings them together? What kind of mentor can he be to the younger models? Opinionated and profound, Ibrahim is one a of kind, rootsy man and not at all what you’d think he might me.
