Artist: Robin Clare

If you are in London for the Olympics, you must check out Art in the Dancehall: An exhibition of Jamaican music design and illustration from 1980 to the present at the Puma Yard (official home of Jamaican Olympic team sponsors). The talented artist (and my lovely friend) Robin Clare is part of the show.

Robin also recently exhibited her Dancing Words and Jamaican Project series in Sydney. I love the rich hand painted text in her work (check out Liquorish and Milkyway on the Jamaican Project page of her website) especially in Dancing Words where the text is interwoven with the repeated imagery of people dancing. Check out more of her work here!
