last night was the launch of a dready art show at Round Hill hotel.

very cool for me because i’ve exhibited in many places but never jamaican themed art, back at home in jamaica.

it was a double whammy of an evening, actually, because at the exact same time as i was exhibiting in jamaica i was, back in cayman, being inducted into the national collection of the national gallery of the cayman islands.

round hill is lovely; in olden days, when i was more yute-ish, mummy was close with the manager – a lovely man named john terry – and we’d go there on weekends to see JT and hang out and t’ing.

round hill was started by john pringle – pringle was 1st cousin to my godfather and they’d grown up in the same house – and especially late in his life i spent some really nice time with pringle in cayman – oddly, his was also a funeral that i’ll well remember and perhaps the only funeral i’ve ever been invited to.

so anyhow, nice nice to be there hanging out and being hung with – i felt really loved by a lot of people; by friends and family and guests of the hotel.

big love


About Dready

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.
