BANANA UMAN AND GAL TAKES OVER THE WALLS OF THE ABBEY
He aims, he shoots, he scores! Leasho.com/paintings Johnson the revered ‘pop artist’ and graduate of the Edna Manley School of Visual Arts surfaces after the National Biennial with a traffic blocking graphic statement.
The banana ‘ooman dem’ and ‘gyal’ is a black and white temporary graphic application set on the walls of the Abbey Court apartments, facing Trafalgar road. On my way from the Saint International's “Fashion Block” I spied 3 suspect characters getting the activation ready at 4am, and at the break of dawn, voila; a back bending, head turning traffic blocking spectacle courtesy of Leasho Johnson.
