About the Author

Dennis L. Forbes, an art connoisseur and award-winning author, specializes in writing books about living visual artists of the 21st century who have made noteworthy contributions in the field of art. His passionate interest in art has led him to interview and document contemporary living visual artists in their studios and workspaces across America. His art enthusiasm emerged at age 13 when he rescued a discarded piece of art from an alley trash bin in Brooklyn, New York, which started his interest in art collecting.

Forbes, a former art dealer, created a home based art business in the 1980s and sold art out of rented space at a variety of local hotels in the Washington, DC area. Today, he has a salon studio in Hyattsville, Maryland, where he lectures about art and artists. In addition, Forbes is a frequent speaker at schools, galleries, universities, and art venues.

Through these experiences, Forbes has gained invaluable insight and expertise about art and the signature artistic styles of the visual artists featured in his multi-topic art books.

Forbes is also the author and publisher of award-winning Studios and Workspaces of Black American Artists (2008) and Collecting Limited Edition Prints: Contemporary African American Printmakers (2004).

Born in New Bern, North Carolina, Forbes received a B.A. and M.A. from North Carolina Central University, as well as an M.P.A. from American University. He lives in Virginia with his wife and children.
