Black Art

Jamaica News, February 21, 2018

Black Art: Black art is underappreciated. Jamaica is filled to the brim with talented people, but it seems to me that their talent is going unnoticed. In this day and age we live in now, it appears that everyone is either on a gadget or asleep, so much so that the world around us is fading away.

Many of these art pieces are symbolic. They represent our past, present and future. They represent who we are and what we hold the potential to be. An example of such is the statue of Sam Sharpe in the center of the Parade Square in Montego Bay, St. James, Jamaica.

This piece is symbolic towards the black society and their revolt against slavery. These art pieces are messages that the artist wants to convey to their audience.

In conclusion to what was said, I believe we as a people should take at least a minute of our day to step back and see the bigger picture.
