Barthelomew (Bart) Cooper is a Los Angeles based multidimensional contemporary artist born and raised in West Africa, Liberia. Inspired by his country’s vibrant colors and breathtaking scenery, a three-year-old Bart began to visually record the world around him. Fleeing Liberia at the start of the civil war, Bart moved to the United States where he studied fine art, sculpture and graphic design. Greatly influenced by Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci, American illustrator Norman Rockwell and American artist Ernie Barnes, he began his pursuit to push the boundaries on the evolution of art and creativity. A reflection of growing up with customary African values in a westernized American culture, Bart’s work merges the traditional with the technological. His signature mixed medium, acrylic style is quickly emerging in the contemporary scene and has already gained him several celebrity clients and private collectors both nationally and internationally. “I’m not just an artist, I’m a creator. I was put here to create. To challenge your physical, mental and spiritual growth. The foundation of my work is all about the message of love. Each individual piece has a conversation with the viewer’s soul, provokes thought, changes the narrative, and inspires you to evolve. It’s all about evolution.”
