Studio Visit with Nicholas Rose

detail of drawing by Nicholas Rose

We got to speak to Nicholas Rose about his work. He uses drawing and painting techniques on non-traditional surfaces as well as drawing with traditional media on paper in large sectioned drawings. Nicholas works in Trelawny, Jamaica which is outside of the cultural capital and buzz of the Jamaican art scene. The people and places of his environment however find their way into his large-scale drawings and paintings. 

Nicholas has had exhibitions in Miami and has upcoming work to be shown in Venice. We want to thank Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts for allowing us to record footage at The Cage Gallery. Thanks to our camera person Danielle RussellWe invite you to visit our YouTube channel and subscribe to keep notified about new content.

Happy International Women's Day!

Jasmine Thomas-Girvan
Women have been a real topic of discussion this year and last year. We are so happy that the world is now actively thinking about how to empower, protect and cherish women. Why are women important at any table of discussion? Why do they deserve the right to drive? Why do women deserve to receive the same education as anyone else? Because women are the givers of life, the link to culture, the original multi-taskers and team builders and most of all women are people and all people deserve human rights. Today we celebrate that.
