About The Artwork

2016 50cm x 70cm Acrylic on Stonehenge Cotton Rag At Dancehall event Sting, the subjects of my painting, D'angel and Ninja Man, stirred up some controversy. During his set Ninja Man was challenged to a clash by D'Angel who had been in the audience. The performance quickly steamed up with sexual innuendo as is often the case. D'angel then suffered a wardrobe malfunction. Remember Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction where a breast was flashed? In comparison D'Angel's firely flash revealed her underwear. Patrons and fans were quick to label the performance too "wild and disturbing for a woman of her age", "for a mother". Resulting in a blanket ban for D'angel from future Sting events both as a patron and performer. While Ninja Man who was a very involved and willing participant in the performance left the incident with his reputation unscathed. The controversy illustrates how precarious a tightrope act it is for women in a such a conservative society.

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.
