Kalup Linzy worked hard to overcome adversities and challenges when growing up in rural central Florida. His goals were to achieve, from Future Business Leaders of America to college.
After earning undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of South Florida, he broke into New York’s art scene in 2003. Two years later, a New York Times review proclaimed: “A star is born.”
Linzy’s performances and exhibitions have been featured at the Sundance Film Festival and in renowned museums worldwide, from Athens to Montreal.
