“Without the ability to visualize an idea or concept, art would not exist today. My works are a constant search for the best ways to interpret the ideas that I have about myself and the world I live in. I try not to limit myself to one medium or style which gives me the freedom to explore and learn while I grow. Inspiration and ideas change all the time, my recent collection; GGG; God’s Greatest Gift, 2022 Collection explores deeper into the truth of religion, politics. Each piece of work I create is executed with my experience from the past. My works are inspired by the laws of nature,culture, and the forms in science” Mikheal Deans




Inception is a group exhibition that signifies our perceptions and experiences of society. Under the theme Power, Disruption and Evolution the objective is to emphasize through personal experiences, the influences of religion, socio-economic, political factors and evolution regarding the search for one’s own identity. These factors affect our way of life in the Caribbean. One of the major historical disruptions is religion. Power is relational and comes from all segments of society. The particular identity of the Caribbean lies in its history of colonial exploitation and the correspondent evolution of a multi-racial creole society divided by ethnicity, color and class. Individuals have also discovered that the search for one’s own identity requires an examination of the institution which has helped to shape that identity.


Inception group exhibition aims to highlight the experiences and thoughts of the artists through painting and mixed-media artworks. The works signify our perception and experiences of society and depict themes such as intersectionality, social injustice, religion, spirituality, brotherhood, nature, identity, crime/violence, and oppression.

INCEPTION, CreativSpace, Kingston


Manifestations features work by students in the BFA programmes, from year 1 to 4, and in a wide range of media and styles, from painting, drawing, sculpture and illustration to installation, digital photography, video, fashion design, and fiber arts, and from conventional realist to experimental. The works of art on view were selected from a pool of submissions by a panel of faculty members. No theme was imposed, but there is a strong focus on gender issues in many of the submissions, and in each work, a distinctive emerging artistic voice is evident, hence the chosen title.

The exhibition is curated and organized as a project of the School of Visual Arts Introduction to Curatorial Studies course, which is taught by Dr Veerle Poupeye, a veteran art curator in the Caribbean context.
