ART FROM THE STREETS

 

Tracy Thorne takes Jamaican Art to London with an exhibition called “Big tings a gwaan down di street.” The show runs April 5 to 18 at The Old Print Works, Upper Gallery, Balsall Heath. It explores  Jamaican art through street murals, graffiti and hand-painted signs that express the exuberant nature of the island.

Thorne also collected original sign pieces from ten Jamaican artists and behind photographs and video footage of painters in their studios.  “Their brushes paint a rich visual language on the streets of Jamaica combining commercial advertising with expressions of Jamaican culture and life,” says Thorne. The exhibition is funded and supported by the Arts Council, England.
