Chee Bravo is a multimedia artist and printmaker. Her multimedia focuses on creating interactive installations where she draws the audience into her personal experiences. Her ongoing performer series capture moments of joie de vivre in carefully chosen subjects through color and movement. The use of current technology to initially create a digital collage then revert back to the traditional silkscreening medium is key to her artmaking.
About Chee Bravo
Her ongoing art of Deity bricolage, the worship of many Gods, interprets society’s fixation on wants. This cumulative approach to her work reflects her traditional beginnings as a printmaker, extensive professional graphic design career, and childhood growing up in the culturally diverse Trinidad and Tobago, West Indies before immigrating to the U.S.
Chee Bravo received her BFA in printmaking at the Florida International University (FIU) in Miami. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and received multiple awards throughout her career. Her prints and paintings can be found in the Trenton City Museum & Mercer County Culture & Heritage permanent collections, NJ, the FIU permanent collection, FL, the Brooklyn Art Library, NY, Frontline Arts of NJ and private collections. She is a 2022 recipient of a New Jersey Council on the Arts Fellowship. She lives and works in Trenton, New Jersey.
