Harlan Lovestone (born in Detroit, Michigan) is a visual artist and multimedia artist who has exhibited regionally in various parts of the United States.
Harlan became enamored with pop culture and art during his childhood in Detroit, which eventually led him to study fine arts at the Center for Creative Studies and Wayne State University. In college, he began to experiment with analog video and appropriating images, which would both continue to be aspects of his work in the future.
Using humor and poignant messages, much of Lovestone’s art deals with introspective examination, social understanding, and forms of dialogue created via the context of painting, expressionism, multiculturalism, and new media forms.
