Historical Context:
Raised in Kentucky and upstate New York, Tate Nation received his B.F.A. from Western Kentucky University where he was a collegiate swimmer. Nation paints in multiple layers of acrylics on canvas-covered wood panels, creating vibrant paintings with rich textures. His paintings are a lively medley of bold compositions, festive themes, and a vivid color palette influenced by Caribbean art.
