Born in Trinidad, Sherwin Ovid’s multi-disciplinary works explore diaspora, hybridity and the aesthetics of migration and migratory forms. 

Sherwin Ovid deploys tactics of collage, bricolage, excess and ornamentation in paintings that explore cultural transmission, class aspiration, and migratory aesthetics. He received his BFA from the School Art Institute of Chicago in 2007 and a Master’s of Fine Art in 2014 from the University of Illinois at Chicago where he received a Lincoln Fellowship in 2013.
