Reed Govert was born in Denver, Colorado in 1986.  He studied at the Savannah College of Art and Design, and later at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.  

Govert's work is marked by a use of thick, physically present oils on a very large scale.  His paintings range from the traditional exploration of the figure in space to conceptualized works formed through compound imagery, always meditating on themes of the human psyche and basic emotion.  Govert currently lives and works in Cincinnati, Ohio.
