the transplanted project: myth be told

The Transplanted Project presents: "Myth Be Told", an exploration of Caribbean folklore and mythology. Visual artists explore the rich history of the Caribbean, reinterpreting, re-imagining, and in some cases flipping the myth on its ear.

The "Myth be Told" opening reception was a success! I'd like to congratulate the organizer, participating artists, and guests on a great night.

The show runs through June 6, 2011:

This is my painting of "Mami Wata" the African water goddess. I portrayed her as the face of Trinidad and Tobago, utilizing the country's coat of arms as the backdrop.

Here are the mini prints I made of the painting. They are deocupage prints on wood, 6.5in x 8.25in ($65 each). Signed on the back and ready to hang.
