Jamaican Pulse: Di-Andre C.Davis and Leasho Johnson

  • Tue, 28 Jun 2016
  • 6.00 PM - 8.00 PM
  • Tickets: £3/£2

Jamaican artists Di-Andre Caprice Davis and Leasho Johnson are undertaking a two week residency at Bluecoat in partnership with Royal West of England Academy, Bristol and New Local Space, Kingston, Jamaica.

In this artists' talk they will discuss their work, which revolves around the politics of seeing and ownership of the female experience. 

 

Di-Andre Caprice Davis was born in Kingston, Jamaica. She often uses digital techniques in her work, as well as new technologies, such as animation and digital image manipulation. Davis uses collaging techniques to transform still images and video into looping and hypnotic GIFs. She currently lives and works in Kingston.

Check out Davis' tumblr page to see her artwork.

 

Leasho Johnson is a painter and graphic designer, whose work is strongly influenced by the contradictions he experienced living and growing up in Jamaica. His paintings, which combine a pop-art aesthetic with cartoonish figures and realistic imagery, are a social commentary that allow him to break down what he sees as contentious and disturbing issues. In his own words, Johnson is a 'Jamaican Contemporary Artist'.

Check out Johnson's tumblr, and website.
