Calvert’s narrative accounts carve the urban and political landscape. His fluid, expansive perspective via these dramatic tableaus kneads together memory, sentiment and awareness. Calvert has done intaglio prints, stone lithographs, drawings, screen-prints, and woodcuts. Also: Paintings, bas-relief cast paper etchings and a large scale painted fabric collaboration, Wishbone: Seoul/Sherbrooke, with Canadian and Korean artists based on his Animal Farm woodcuts.
Two of his artworks were selected for The Best of Printmaking, Quarry Books, 1997, an international survey of contemporary printmaking. Mr. Calvert is the curator for The Levee, an international print portfolio featuring 28 artists from 6 countries.
He earned a BFA, Printmaking, Kansas City Arts Institute and an MFA in Printmaking, Cranbrook Academy of Art. A native New York City boy, he resides in the Catskills now. His work has shown internationally and is in numerous collections, including the New Orleans Museum of Art, Capital One, and the New York Public Library Print Collection on 42nd street..
