Art 84 Artists

Art 84 hosts individual artists and collectives of various styles and media along with live Dance + Music + Art. Here are some of the artists that have been hosted by Art 84.

Cornelius Carter 

Taking inspiration from multiple traditions, Cornelius weaves together imagery from history, mythology, childhood, and life experience to create paintings that are thought-provoking, captivating, and beautiful. He often incorporates historical elements and classical styling, but from his own cultural perspective. People and their relationships are a central theme in his work.
