Summary
Painter Kerry James Marshall was born on October 17, 1955 in Birmingham, Alabama. He realized he wanted to be an artist at an early age. When Marshall was eight, his family moved to the Watts community in Los Angeles. As the epicenter of intense struggle for civil rights, Watts and its imagery dramatically influenced the form and content of Marshall's work. His celebrated series, "The Garden Project", critiqued low-income housing projects whose names denoted an idyllic, Eden-like world. Marshall received his training from Charles White while enrolled at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. Best known for his stylized, large-scale paintings depicting the beauty and complexity of African American life, Marshall also designs sculpture and served as a production designer for films. He was named the recipient of the prestigious MacArthur "Genius" Grant and his work was incorporated into the permanent collections of many museums across the nation.
