About the Artist
Bolivar's work often re-enacts seminal cannons of modernist painting such as Kazimir Malevich's 'black square' or paintings from Malevich's late period; using this context of interpretation to create new meanings from the sublime to the ridiculous.
Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Bolivar graduated from Goldsmiths College and has twice been a recipient of a Pollock-Krasner award.
His work is included in The Government Art Collection, and selected for significant exhibitions such as New British Painting at John Hansard Gallery, University of Southampton and East International at Norwich School of Art. His work was included in Nanjing Museum's first international exhibition of contemporary art where he was a prize winner.
