Historical Context:
Caribbean artist Erick Picardo art is inspired by childhood memories, nature, deities and mythology. His canvases, whether they be traditional canvases, found objects, or murals, are full of bright colors and bold, abstract shapes. He often straddles the line between traditional art and functional art when he paints on common household objects like umbrellas and chairs. While early in his career he focused on representational painting, abstraction is now his calling.
