Roscoé B. Thicke
Photographer, visual artist, community advocate, and father of three, Roscoè B. Thické III was born and raised in Miami, Florida. After graduating high school, Thické enlisted in the US Army to embark on a journey of exploration and transformation. The army provided Thicke with the opportunity to see the world via his travels, but it would be a volunteer-based photography class in South Korea, that would take Thické from amateur explorer of culture and customs, to the intentional, stirring and impressive images we see of his work today. Thické pursued his passion for visual arts by studying photography and design at Broward College. His work is centered around the resilience of spirit, affliction of memory, and the art in “seeing”, as recognized in his exhibited work at The Bass Museum and The Art and Culture Center in Hollywood, Fla. He received an Ellies Creator award in 2021 and is currently an artist-in-residence at Oolite Arts.
