On the same date as Pablo Picasso died, in the same year as Jean-Michel Basquiat’s death, the artist, Cavier Coleman was born. Raised in Detroit, Michigan during its financial crisis, Cavier’s innate athleticism secured the student a basketball scholarship to Emmanuel College. The talent thrived during his second year of college which abruptly ended when a model scout discovered Cavier. The nineteen-year-old immediately launched his career as an international model which spanned the globe from New York to South Africa. During his travels, the pensive adventurer embarked on a quest in pursuit of artistic expression.
Cavier redefines the meaning of “multi-media artist” with an expansive skill set in a broad spectrum of mediums which include oil paintings, music, art installations, photography, and graphic design. Both, his photographs and paintings are constructed with high contrast, bold lines, and vibrant color schemes. His artistry exhibits the influence of Pablo Picasso and Jean Michael Basquiat, but his paintings are easily identified by a distinct style that remains unmistakably, Cavier. His pieces have been featured in the Mayson Gallery as well as celebrity art shows curated by the Fancy Art Collective. Recently, the artist collaborated with Saks Fifth Avenue placing art installations throughout the department store and in its window displays. The visual virtuoso paintings have hung on the same wall as Roy Lichtenstein earning him a write-up in L’umo Vogue. Cavier Coleman is currently working on several projects that encompass ad campaigns, art shows, store displays, agency websites, and commercials.
