— Visual artist
Jamaican visual artist, Taj Francis, was born in 1989 in the parish of St. Andrew. As a graduate of the Edna Manley College of Visual Arts, he is currently an independent visual artist, with a diverse interest of expression, mainly focused through illustration. The body of work he produces, draws influence from a combination of Jamaican Reggae Aesthetic, Japanese Manga, Vinyl and Post Art, Baroque Paintings and Pop Art.
However, his work continues to evolve and grabs from different influences and genres of art. This is expressed in the form of social commentary, exploration of cultural dualities and internal human issues, which are subject matters that will often be seen in his body of work.
