Destiny Belgrave

Destiny Belgrave’s mixed-media works are loving and vibrant mosaics of her subjects. The artist’s tactile works have a sometimes ornamental attention to pattern, and she employs strong technical skills to achieve precise figuration. Belgrave was nurtured by a Caribbean and African American upbringing, and her work upholds and uplifts Blackness, family and culture—elevating the domestic by memorializing it in the tradition of formal portraiture.
