Marcellous Lovelace: Reason in Art

By Kenia Cris

Artwork by Marcellous Lovelace

The work of Marcellous Lovelace is based in escaping the worst situation possible. Born to a down to earth southern Baptist family, his background in Art came from the heart and soul of Africans all over the world. Marcellous’s paintings are images of what he studied and continues to live through. 

Using basically anything to draw and paint with, his works are always about something building positivity and what’s important, because the world we live in is so negative and unimportant at times, then Marcellous finds a space for what can be seen as useless. Coming from a world of police brutality and racism stands a man who is not afraid to be exactly who he is all the time regardless of who it affects.

If it is political or reality Lovelace is going to paint it just as it is. His imagination allows for freedom to live in actual facts and not taint self in materialism and a fabricated world of clothing with shiny trick lets.  Marcellous is a man who is brave, strong, thoughtful, intelligent and defined by his realistic character.  He stands aware seeing children kill for sport in the cities we live in, designing thoughts on being about something besides the next fashion trend. Think and produce substance and meaning all the time regardless of how it offends commercialized gimmicks,  Marcellous’s work says use your mental and your visual to compose honesty in love of self.
