Kevin Darmanie


Kevin Darmanie is a figurative painter whose works explore intersections in digital media and paint implicated by his relationships both personal and societal. Working largely in watercolor on paper the Trinidad & Tobago, born Newark NJ native uses the common conventions of digital platforms and media sharing to inform his images before rendering them in paint. His series ‘Rainbow Country’ incorporates tropes of graphic novels to re-examine Caribbean attitudes, social critique, and self-introspection. He has exhibited at Paul Robeson Gallery, (Messier Gallery at Express Newark) at Rutgers University, The Reginald Ingraham Gallery CA, The Harold B. Lemmerman Gallery at New Jersey City University, Ground Floor Gallery in Brooklyn, Gallery Aferro in Newark, NJ and Ramapo College, Ramapo NJ and the Utah Arts Center, UT.
