The Art of Jazz and Blues and Rock and Soul
Everett Spruill is an African American painter, photographer, and printmaker. Spruill earned a B.S. in Business from Berea College in 1976. Everett creates collages from magazine cutouts while also using an increasingly complex variation of recycled and repurposed materials focusing on Jazz and African cultures as the central themes. His first radical shift came in 1995, when he combined the principals of serigraphy and graffiti techniques, using spray paint with hand cut stencils. From the mid-1980’s to the mid-1990’s, Spruill created a large body of work that responded in a general way to his love of stained glass.
