“One of my favorite things to do, is to do artwork on functional objects. I love skateboards, but of course the most I can do on one is get from point A to B without dying, but I love them regardless.”
Jamaican visual artist, Taj Francis, has a array of visual expression, mainly focused through illustration. The body of work he produces, draws influence from a Jamaican Reggae aesthetic, Japanese Manga, vintage vinyl and poster Art, Baroque Paintings and Super-Flat Pop Art aesthetic. However, his work continues to evolve and manifest in variety of ways, such as street art, video art and animation. Cultural dualities, internalized human issues, and African/ Caribbean identity, are subject matters that will often be seen in his body of work. His work has been exhibited in places such as Athens, Cancun, Berlin and his home country Jamaica.
These creations are just few of his visions that we humbly share.
Who Knows Dub is a collaborative artwork of Taj Francis with Winta James, Protoje and Chronixx. It’s the second piece of the “TENFOLD: Opus” project. The project is an Audio-Visual EP, with a collection of collaborative pieces with producers and musicians, in which they interpret each others work to come together for one audio-visual dialogue. This piece was inspired by the duality of inner peace and anxiety
