Painter - they/them, or she/her
Chanté Glover is a freelance multimedia artist, with a focus on acrylic painting and tattoo, currently living in Brooklyn, New York. Chanté was raised in Santa Barbara California. Growing up in two distinctly different households and as one of the few multiracial/black, non-binary creatives amongst their peers, they often felt themselves bending to navigate and make sense of a maze of identity crossroads. As soon as they were able to they left the U.S. to travel and explore less conventional ways of living, engaging with art, and a diversity of communities. Inwardly they began the search for a deeper sense of self and belonging, garnering broader perspectives of what ties us together in our humanity. Chanté seeks to utilize art as a way of exploring these intersections of identity, ambiguity, spirituality, sensation and dreams while diving deeper into the unseen threads that connect us. They are continually engaging with the question of what it is to be human. Chanté often paints people immersed in rich colors, gold leaf and symbolism as a way to explore these personal and collective narratives. Their award winning work has been featured in publications such as V Magazine, and has been showcased in various events and exhibits around the world. Chantés most recent project is a series of acrylic paintings entitled ‘Winter Solstice’, exploring the realms of grief, interdependence, and hope amongst civil unrest and the ongoing global pandemic.
