Raymond Holbert

(American, born 1945)

African American artist Raymond Holbert was born in Berkeley, California and received a Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts, and Master of Fine Arts from the University of California, Berkeley. He has acted as an instructor in art and design at San Francisco Community College, and a consultant of African American art and art history.

Holbert creates mixed media artworks that combine drawing, collage, photography, illustration, and more. His subject matter ranges from a fascination with medicine, science and leisure, to current public dilemmas. Journaling is an important part of his everyday process. He sums it up as “I believe that art is a process that is not part time.”
