Name: Evans Thorne
The Culture of Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean is my main subject. Color ties everything together. My art is about the conditions of people in everyday life. The emphasis is on the colors, designs and placement of figures to suggest movement Color and texture to guide the eye and set the mood. These paintings are about carnival activities practiced for over one hundred years, and influenced by the cultures of the original Native Indians of the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Asia, the Americas, and the Middle East.
Life in the Caribbean today is influenced by cultures from Europe, Africa Asia, and the Middle East. This potpourri of cultures has resulted in a very diverse artistic climate in music, dance, visual art, and various crafts. The unique output from different island countries which add their own influences.
