Stuart V. Robertson (b. Kingston, Jamaica) is a mixed media artist who paints, collages, and assembles images of Black life inspired by the nostalgia for his birthplace, the lure of the American dream, and the African Diaspora’s future. His goal is to advance the tradition of painting through interdisciplinary discourse and material innovation to better serve the representation of the Black diaspora in contemporary art. Robertson received a BA in studio art from Davidson College in 2015, a MSEd from the University of Pennsylvania in 2018, and MFA from Stanford University in 2020. His work has been shown in the Jamaica Biennial (2014) and, recently, in the Annual Murphy and Cadogan Contemporary Art Awards Exhibition (2019). This year, Stewy is a Graduate Fellow at the Headlands Center for the Arts and an Honorary Artist in Residence at the Kala Art Institute.
