Clintel Steed – Originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, Clintel Steed (b. 1977) lives and works in New York City and a small monastery in a discreet location on sacred land in upstate New York. Steed earned his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where he received praise and accolades for his vigorous and inexhaustible pursuit of painting. Steed earned his MFA from Indiana University. There, his work blossomed. Immediately afterwards, Steed moved to Harlem to continue his life’s work of painting. While working at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Steed pursued and completed a degree in Advanced Studies at the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture. Steed’s work has been exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions worldwide. Most recent solo exhibitions include, “Behind the Hood” at Mark Borghi, Sag Harbor, NY (2021); “Allegory of Now” at M+B, Los Angeles (2020); “Compendium Part II”, Mark Borghi Fine Art, Bridgehampton, NY (2019); and “Clintel Steed: Paintings” at John Davis Gallery, Hudson, NY (2018). Steed’s work was also recently in the following group exhibitions, “Incise, Echo and Repeat” at The Clemente Center, NY (2019); “New Narrative Now” at Michael David & Company, NY (2019); “Emoji Show” at Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery, NY (2018).
