Tavares Strachan was bon in the Bahamas and holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and a MFA from Yale University. Strachan's work touches on many different issues: environmental, geographical, social, cultural, and historical. His most recent focus is on global warming and the recognition (or denial) of current and potential climactic changes in relation to the politics of global warming. Socially, Strachan has been working to involve communities of school children in the Bahamas through lectures, the tradition of oral story telling, and performances. His solo exhibitions include the Luggage Store, San Francisco; Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, New York; Pierogi 2000, Brooklyn; and the Aubrey Sayle Primary School, Nassau, Bahamas.
