Born in 1960, Michelangelo Lovelace is one of the most eloquent painters of life in Cleveland’s black neighborhoods. His subjects include prostitution, crackhouses, drive-by shootings, fatherless families and discarded children. His larger goal is to express the despair caused by the chasm between the promise and the reality of urban life in America for poof blacks.
