About the Artist: “Growing up from humble beginnings in Trinidad and Tobago, Glenn Roopchand was influenced by renowned artist, Carlisle Chang, with whom he worked and developed his skills in the areas of painting, mural, costume and stage designs. A desire to pursue a professional career in painting led him to being awarded a scholarship to study art at Pratt University NY and Art Students League NY. He returned to Trinidad in the late 1970’s and spent years teaching art at high school level. Glenn exhibited his works at various galleries and two of his paintings are in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Trinidad and Tobago. He received honours and awards, namely winner of the Trinidad and Tobago leg of the Caribbean art competition and first runner up in the finals held in Barbados.
