Winfred rembert biography


Winfred Rembert is an African American artist who hand-tools and paints on leather canvases. Rembert grew up in Cuthbert, Georgia, where he spent much of his childhood laboring in the cotton fields. He was arrested during a 1960s civil rights march. As a prisoner, he learned to make tooled leather wallets and design on leather. Rembert stretches, stains, and etches on leather and creates scenes from the rural Southern town where he was born and raised.
