Identity, 2022


Elijah Trice is a contemporary artist, born and raised in Baltimore and apart of our 2022 – 2023 Accelerate Cohort. Trice was born into a family of skillful artists, varying from photographers to musicians. At a young age, he developed figurative and technical drawing skills and started to experiment with graphite and charcoal. He went on to receive his B.S in Architecture at Morgan State University. After year of working in an architecture firm, he decided to continue his studies at Rhode Island School of Design. Inspired mostly by everyday conversations with friends, family, even strangers, he captures personalities and expressions that tell stories about his subjects. By being the son of a photographer, he allows his subjects to pose and position themselves however they please. In doing so, this allows the subject to control and tell their narrative in an authentic manner. Select photos go on to be edited and used as reference photos for the painting process. Over the course of a year and a half, a few of Trice’s works have been showcased and sold in multiple art markets and billboards throughout cities such as Providence and Baltimore.
