Visual Culture: Taj Francis’ TENFOLD: Opus Series

Words by Saxon Baird—


Taj Francis, who was featured in our Toppa Ten Jamaican Artists You Should Know spotlight last year, has been catching our eyes for a minute now with his psychedelic, reggae-meets-anime style. The Jamaican music world has taken note as well. His work graced the cover of Protoje’s album The 8-Year Affair last year and, in 2012, Francis was a winner in the inaugural International Reggae Poster Contest.

Visual Culture: Trinidad’s Miles Regis At Art Basel Miami

Words by Natalie Weiner—

Miles Regis is an LA-based, Trinidad-born visual artist whose work is being featured at the Art of Fusion MIA exhibition as part of the Art Basel Miami festival. Regis comes from a family of artists, who encouraged his artistic ambitions in a variety of different media. Although he painted as a teenager, he achieved initial recognition as a vocalist in Trinidad, working as the lead singer in bands Kysofusion and Fireflight. It wasn’t until after he got a degree in creative writing from USC that he began to paint, getting his first big break when one of his pieces was featured in Erykah Badu’s “Next Lifetime” video.
