Marcellous Lovelace

Marcellous Lovelace’s medium is painting in mixed media with found materials. He paints from his experience living on the South Side of Chicago and Living in Poverty in the State of Illinois. He uses found objects throughout the City of Chicago and The State of Illinois as reference of his surroundings in my work. Materials Lovelace uses include everything from old found pieces of paper, garbage cans, tires, mattresses to used construction material found from torn down buildings. According to Lovelace, Chicago is such a diversely segregated environment it influences struggle and pain.
