Inspired by the biography, Divided Soul by David Ritz, “The Life of Marvin Gaye,” by Kadir Nelson, is a visual montage detailing the tortured life of one of America’s most beloved soul singer’s of the twentieth century. Through painted vignettes, Nelson presents Marvin’s story, from the singer’s youth as an abused child, his rise to fame and fortune as a Motown soul singer, his fall from grace, and his comeback, to his tragic death at the hands of his own father. Painted on a nine by four feet canvas, Marvin’s epic tale is brought to life in vivid color and stunning detail utilizing both symbolism and candor to recount the singer’s troubled and emotional journey.

Kadir Nelson

Kadir Nelson began drawing at the age of three, displaying artistic acumen before he could write or spell. “I have always been an artist,” Nelson explains. “It’s part of my DNA.” At age eleven, Kadir Nelson was apprenticed by his uncle Michael Morris, an artist and art instructor. “My uncle gave me my foundation in art,” says the artist. Kadir Nelson experimented with several different media and later began painting in oils at the age of sixteen under the encouragement and tutelage of both his uncle and high school art teacher. He began entering his paintings in art competitions and ultimately won an art scholarship to study at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Upon graduating with honors, Kadir Nelson began his professional career as an artist, publishing his work and receiving commissions from publishers and production studios such as Dreamworks, Sports Illustrated, Coca-Cola, The New York Times and Major League Baseball, among others.
