    FEATURED ARTIST

    YERMINE RICHARDSON

    Yermine Richardson is a multidisciplinary artist whose visual works are vibrant celebrations of Caribbean and African cultures and aesthetics.  He was born in La Romana, a sugar industry city in Dominican Republic. Yermine's art is inspired by the traditional semiotics of Afro-Caribbean heritage, such as womanhood, fashion, spiritualism, and cosmotology.


    THE IMPORTANCE OF CARIBBEAN ART STORIES 

    According to Yermine, it is "to learn from our mistakes and look for a better future as a species; what happened in our region is real history that could repeat to us as species; what happened in our islands was a human mistake and we must learn from it and move on.  If we tell our story right we could change the way humans see themseves, as individual entities of their own world and realising that we cooud creare anything that we want.  I want to present people like me who think beyond the limits that have been imposed on me by being gay, black, poor, and from a poor black country."
