The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Hon. Olivia Grange and Mayor of Kingston, Senator Councillor Delroy Williams recently unveiled the first mural of the ‘Paint Up Yu Creative Space’ project on Temple Lane in downtown Kingston. The mural done by renowned international muralist Irvin Gomez through the efforts of the Mexican Embassy depicts reggae icon Bob Marley, a couple and a Mexican woman blowing a trumpet.


According to JIS, the three-phase project, which is a collaboration between the Culture Ministry and the Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC), aims to promote the international designation Kingston has received and highlight opportunities for Kingston to showcase, in creative ways, the essence of its culture.


Phase two will see two separate walls painted within the vicinity of the Coronation Market within the next six months. The final phase will see the internationalisation of a perimeter wall identified at Flag Circle along the waterfront in Kingston.
