Cuban Fine Arts Gallery Artist Spotlight: Introducing Cavier Coleman

Cavier Coleman redefines the meaning of “multi-media artist” with an expansive skillset in a broad spectrum of mediums which include: oil paintings, music, art installations, photography, and graphic design. His photographs and paintings are constructed with high contrast, bold lines, and vibrant color schemes. His artistry exhibits the influence of Pablo Picasso and Jean Michael Basquiat, but his paintings are easily identified by an umistakably distinct style. His pieces have been featured in the Mayson Gallery as well as celebrity art shows curated by the Fancy Art Collective.

Raised in Detroit, Michigan during its financial crisis, Cavier Coleman went to Emmanuel College on a basketball scholarship. During his second year, he was discovered by a model scout, and the then-nineteen year old immediately launched his career as an international model which spanned the globe from New York to South Africa.

The model quickly found himself on the other side of the camera’s lens in the role of photographer. His meticulous attention to detail, distinct point of view, and ambition positioned him at the forefront of fashion media.  As a photographer, Cavier continued to work with top agencies like: DNA, Request, and Ford Models.  He gained notoriety after his photographs appeared in Complex, Interview Magazine, amongst other publications.  During this time his client list grew including brands such as Puma, Footaction, Hudson Jeans, and Jack Threads. Currently, he is Director of Photography for Black Pyramid, Hudson Outerwear (Soulja Boy), and Pro-Standard, an athletic brand in partnership with the NBA.
