Clive Stuart attended A.F.Adderley High School with John Beadle and Jolyon Smith under the tutelage of Sandra Illingsworth. He received an AA in Fine Art from The College of The Bahamas, studying under Stan Burnside, and a BF in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design. After that, a year spent freelancing in Australia helped him harness his own unique artistic style. Stuart served as an educator in the Government Secondary school system for many years and is now a Vice Principal. He devotes his time to being a role model for young Bahamian men through creativity by spearheading the Junior Junkanoo parade.
In 2004, Stuart held his first solo exhibition, titled ‘Collages,’ and his work was accepted for inclusion in the National Exhibitions in 2003, 2004, and 2006 at The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas, He was one of the earliest installation artists in The Bahamas, and his installation ‘Blood, Sweat & Tears’ was mounted in 2008 at The Nassauischer Kunstverein, Germany, and subsequently re-installed in Nassau for the Funky Nassau exhibition. “East Street Revolution” is his third solo exhibition, which was held at The Current Gallery & Art Center.
