Che Lovelace (b. 1969, Port of Spain, Trindad) paints the constantly intersecting lives of the people, flora, and fauna of his native Trinidad. Infused with rich colors and bold shapes, these paintings straddle the boundary between magical realism and abstraction. His practice increasingly includes elements of performance which he absorbs into his painting process. Lovelace received his training at l’Ecole Régionale des Beaux-Arts de la Martinique. He has had solo exhibitions at Independent New York, NY; Y Art Gallery, Woodbrook, Port of Spain; Softbox Studio, St Clair, Trinidad; Galerie Éric Hussenot, Paris, FR; and Half Gallery, New York, NY. His work is in the public collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, the Institute of Contemporary Art Miami, X Museum, Beijing, CH, and the Aïshti Foundation, Lebanon. Lovelace is a lecturer at the University of the West Indies Creative Arts Campus.
