albert artwell

Born on October 23, 1942, in Catadupa, Artwell - a visionary - was first inspired to "illustrate" in a marvellously decorative calligraphy various passages from the Scriptures.  Later, he began painting pictures, usually religious scenes updated with elements of topical humour.  A Crucifixion scene, for example, reveals among the onlookers several colonial types, including a medal-bedecked British officer.  His work is marked by a clear and concise imagery in fresh, flatly painted colours.  Artwell's work has been exhibited all over the world.  His work is on permanent display at the National Gallery of Jamaica, and he is a recipient of the Lady Musgrave Medal for Achievements in the Arts.  He is considered one of the founders of the Jamaican Intuitive Movement.
