In celebration of the Decade of Ecosystem Restoration the Ministry of Environment and National Beautification is hosting a Virtual Art Exhibition entitled Celebrating Biodiversity and the Environment Through Art. Barbados is fortunate to have a number of passionate artists with inspiring works focused on Biodiversity and the Environment, and we would like to shine a spotlight on some of these artists in our “Meet the Artists” series.
Today’s feature is Mr. Tracy DeOlivere Greenidge.
This consummate artist is Barbadian by birth and is truly the perfectionist.
Tracy DeOlivere Greenidge, an award winning Photographer/Graphic Designer and Visual Artist has been bestowed with numerous gold, silver and bronze medals during his participation in the festival and was honored with the coveted Prime Minister’s Award of Excellence for the most outstanding entry for NIFCA 2006.
He also copped the Percé Tappin Award for photography at the National Independence Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA) 2006 in Barbados including being awarded the Prime Minister’s Scholarship in 2007.
Shortly after he enrolled in Sessions College of Professional Design where he furthered his studies in photography, graphic design and digital art.
In 2013 he had his first ever acting debut in the locally produced movie “PAY DAY” playing a small part in a role as the character “Gus” which premiered at the Olympus Cinemas and was also featured in New York, the U.K and at the Trinidad Film Festival.
He also created “DeOlivere Originals“, a company which specializes in Photography, Fine Art, Digital Art, Graphic Design and now in 2021 has also added Digital sculpting and CGI Art to his list of skillsets.
