Born in 1992 in Chicago, IL, to Puerto Rican and African American parents—Gerald Lovell, uses his artistic practice as a means to self-discovery, and self-articulation. Lovell began his career as an artist after dropping out of the graphic design program at the University of West Georgia as an undergraduate, realizing his need to embrace a new creative path. This epiphany Lovell had in 2014 was his point of departure from a more formal to informal and unorthodox mode of artistic production. He later emerged as a self-taught artist, showing his work on the Atlanta art scene and beyond. Lovell has since developed a unique style and approach to painting, as he poses a dialogue between interspersed impasto and flat surrealist styles on canvas, to create imaginative portraits—using heavy paint application to highlight the human form. His development as a portrait painter has led to works of a very quotidian and common nature—while reifying the lived experiences of his peers.
Born in Kolkata, India, Sangram Majumdar lives and works in Seattle, WA. Recently he has exhibited at venues including Shoshana Wayne Gallery, Los Angeles, Geary Contemporary, New York City, Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects, New York City and Asia Society Texas Center. His work has been reviewed in Artforum, The Brooklyn Rail and Hyperallergic, among others.
