Paint Jamaica!

Saturday August 16, 2014

On this day I volunteered with Paint Jamaica. The goal of Paint Jamaica is to change and revolutionize the relationship between art, talent and society; along with creative expression, they had a greater social cause which is to change the negative stigma around Kingston’s inner cities. Essentially Paint Jamaica is “The social & art intervention set to transform Jamaica’s visual surroundings through democratic art and uplifting messages. “

I helped with one of the last paintings at 41 Fleet Street, Parade Gardens, Jamaica. Which was the Marcus Garvey mural for his Birthday that was coming up on August 17th. (The mural was not completed on this day and will be shown in a later post.) Read more.
