Glenn Roopchand's TTT mural

When the Bookman and I met Glenn Roopchand, we were visiting the National Museum and he was installing his tribute to his mentor Carlyle Chang. Mr. Roopchand was kind enough to tell us about his early life, having personal family issues that led him to Mr. Chang’s studio and to his mentoring.

Mr. Roopchand now lives and works in United States , but comes back home to Trinidad to exhibit. He was extremely pleased that his work has been very warmly received and that it is in constant demand. His shows at the National Museum have sold more than any other living artist at this time. He is very open to doing work in Trinidad and Tobago, and continues to work daily. - Adele
