About Chee Bravo

Chee Bravo is a multimedia artist and printmaker. Her multimedia focus is to create interactive installations where she draws the audience into her personal experiences. She also creates portraits of people in manipulated environments, a combination of photography and computer manipulation which are then recreated on canvas or paper through mixed media, painting or silk-screening.

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 permanent collection, NJ, the FIU permanent collection, FL, the Brooklyn Art Library, NY, Frontline Arts of NJ and private collections. She lives and works in Trenton, New Jersey.
