Visual Arts

Jamaican art didn't take on a life of its own until the 1920s, when Jamaican "intuitive" artists, like the famous Kapo, began developing their own style instead of just copying European trends. From the 1940s, the Jamaican desire for independence became an important influence on the artistic expressions. Jamaican art has over centuries addressed many issues such as slavery, race, nationalism and Rastafarianism while drawing inspiration also from the more traditional themes of love, family and the human form.
