Meet Bernard Hoyes, master painter from Jamaica. He is among the many Caribbean nationals who have served their countries well on foreign soil. Now residing in California, Hoyes is among the most widely collected and exhibited contemporary artists internationally. Through his art, many have been able to connect with Jamaican culture and people.
A noted painter, printmaker and sculptor, Hoyes recently began exploring the principles of etching techniques. Through his intimate interpretations, Hoyes earned favourable criticism from noted critics, such as Jamaican-French resident Alicia McKenzie. Among the magazines that feature his work are Afrikan Business and Cultural Quarterly based in London, which featured one of his exhibitions in Singapore.
