PJRP 2016 – Navarro Newton

Born in New Providence and raised on the island of Andros, I fell in love with nature and the creative arts at a young age. Just recently, in 2013 I began my formal education in Visual Arts at the College of the Bahamas. And I have been making new discoveries about my creative practice ever since.

Artist Statement:
My creative practice is informed by the potential of a medium to create subtle nuances in opacity and texture . And how through the application and projections of figurative shapes suggested by the movement of media on a surface, a narrative can be built. Directed through incidental and imagined compositions.
