Jamaican visual artist, Taj Francis, was born in 1989 in the parish of St. Andrew. As a graduate of the Edna Manley College of Visual Arts, he is currently an independent visual artist with a diverse interest of expression mainly focused through illustration. The works he produces draw influence from a combination of Jamaican Reggae aesthetics, Japanese Manga, Vinyl and Poster Art, Baroque Paintings and Pop Art aesthetics. His work continues to evolve and grabs from different influences and genres of art. This is expressed in the exploration of cultural dualities, internalised human issues, and youth and African identity which are subject matters that will often be seen in his body of work.
