Randall Gerard Fulchan

Artist R.Gerard Fulchan was born Trinidadian in the year 1988. He has always felt a connection and oneness with the Visual Arts. His eyes and mind are always feasting on the diverse richness of this tropical landscape and the bold vibrant tones which contrast and play in harmony.

Artist Statement
To me art is about personal or observational experiences. As an artist I strive to connect with my viewers. I aim to move them emotionally. Conceptual/ Abstract / Impressionistic Art forms are my language of choice for doing this. Looking at society I try to look past the struggles of life by highlighting the beauty that resides in us all. We are all loved by a greater power. Searching our heart through the hurt we come to find a deeper sense of purpose, an awakening so to speak.

The caterpillar enters into the cocoon stage in order to emerge as a wondrous and magnificent creature. So too must we all strive to be like that caterpillar, look forward with our head held high always striving to view the light of the world but remain humbled.


I love working with oil paints, acrylic paints as well as inks. To me, I have found the path that I am meant to walk, the path of an artist. Life has a way of guiding us to self-actualisation but to achieve this we need to pay attention to the various signs that are given in order to become. Today I am a full time artist and as for my art career I am focusing on building a solid foundation and constantly refining my skills and techniques so that I can evolve into an iconic artist of Trinidad and Tobago.
