Cudelice Brazelton is a visual artist living in Columbus, Ohio. His work focuses on thecurrent topics of racial identity and the language of urban culture through a wide range of media including video, performance, installation, painting, and sculpture. Common sources of inspiration comes from vintage blaxploitation films, black masculinity, hiphop, and the puzzling functioning of the art world with all of it’s participants. He is fascinated with kitschy humor and absurdity, and how these elements can add a new layer to these complex social structures, combining and contrasting a range of classes and subcultures. Brazelton was in our annual juried exhibition VOX X: Present Tense at Vox Populi in PhIladelphia, Pennsylvania, and attended ACRE in the summer of 2014. Upcomingshows include a group exhibition in The Bike Room at Nancy Lu Rosenheim in 2015.
