Antoine is an artist and educator who received his BFA from UNC-Charlotte. Afterwards, he helped start a local art collective in Charlotte where he coordinated a number of community based art projects such as after school programs, concerts, murals and pop up art shows. In 2014 Antoine received his MFA from the UNC-Chapel Hill. He now lives in Chapel Hill, where he continues his studio practice while teaching painting, drawing, and art history (Bio from SCGA).

Before my ekphrastic poetry reading based on his exhibit at the Sumter County Gallery of Art, Thursday, May 21, 2015, 5:30-7:30 PM, I had a conversation with Antoine concerning his process and the state of art as expression. The talk is below on SoundCloud.
