I went to a birthday party the other day and this dready was on the wall over an elegant antique mahogany sideboard … when I was a boy there was a similar sideboard in the house, with similar decanters of rum and scotch and gin; their sterling silver labels like chains around sweet bwoy’s neck. Seeing the dready there on that wall, above that sideboard gave it a sense of place in my mind. Dready would like it there.
Dready art is a 100% caribbean product: it was imagined here, designed here, tested here – in barbados, bvi, cayman, grenada and jamaica – we live here and are from here, our children were born here, I draw it here (mostly, cause sometimes I draw it when I’m traveling!). So despite what has become the kind of global reach of dready art we try to think of ourselves as a little caribbean company just doing our thing.
