About The Artwork

Bashment Uprising 2013 Acrylic on Stonehenge Cotton Rag 50cm x 70cm From the Bulls Eye Series American culture has always influenced the island of Jamaica, just as in turn Jamaican culture has influenced American culture, through fashion, dance styles and music. The Bulls Eye series of paintings explore the coming together of these two very different cultures through large scale romaticised cinema poster like images taking inspiration from vintage comic book imagery and dancehall culture. Paying homage to stories told to me by my grandparents and parents about childhoods spent eagerly anticipating the arrival of the latest comic book imports from the US, the series references a short run comic from the 1950's titled Bulls Eye by comic artist team Simon and Kirby, the comic followed the adventures of a western sharp shooter who also went by the name Bulls Eye.

I'm a Contemporary Jamaican artist / illustrator with a passion for promoting my native culture. This shines through in my work which takes inspiration from Jamaica's vibrant pop culture referencing various elements on the island such as street slang, party names and dance techniques. Within my studio practice I employ painting, drawing, printmaking and digital techniques to build a picture of modern Jamaica. I strive to create work that reflects a society that is imaginative, inventive, colourful, resilient and never shy of a likkle controversy. I've had the opportunity to exhibit my work around the world. With paintings included in both public and private collections worldwide, a few notable collections include Stussy Worldwide, Campari Promotions and DanceJa.
