Finally, the day a large section of the Jamaican twitterverse was waiting for, Imprint had arrived. Imprint was Shaundel Campbell’s art exhibition, showcasing her art as well as some other artists’ work; it also had body painting, dancers, and a fashion show. The night ended with a concert, featuring some of the upcoming artistes on the Jamaican music scene. Imma put this out there from now, I didn’t see the concert; so I will just be showing you some photos I took of the art.
I arrived at 9pm, which seemed like everyone had arrived at that time too; a good amount of persons were at the entry way. Inside the New Kingston Conference Centre wasn’t what I expected. It had really dim lighting, with black lights over most of the rooms. There were hanging lights placed over the art pieces so we could see them properly. You could feel the excitement in the air as persons wondered how the night would ensue. The room buzzed with chatter and camera flashes as persons looked at the displays. Please enjoy, and check out the artists, as I will link their twitter handles.

The two photos above were taken by Trish from Art Space Caribbean.
There were a few art pieces that I didn’t get to capture, and though I wasn’t there for long, I enjoyed looking at the art work. It was actually hard to take proper photos of the art because of the lighting but I resorted to flash in some instances. I wish I got to see the performances, I’m in love with Blvk H3ro, he performed as well as Royal Blu, Leno Banton, and Di Vibe. My squad for the night, as seen in the photo above, left and went to Kelissa Live, another concert being held that night.
