Today’s throwback features highlights from the Opening Reception of the ‘Spirit of Budhai’ exhibition which opened on November 17, 2019. The exhibition explored the works of Cuban born artist, Neville Budhai (1928-2001) which was curated by National Gallery West’s very own Assistant Curator, Monique Gilpin as her first major curatorial project.
The opening reception saw a slew of patrons who were quite elated to view the artistry of a man many, remembered to be a very humble and insightful individual . He created colourful interpretations of past and present Jamaican life, most of which were sublimely outlined with Indian ink and eventually saw himself as a full-fledged Jamaican.
