Feature: Jamaican Artist/Sculpture Basil Watson – Raw, Rich, Fascinating Sculpture

11184545_1588771761388295_362137493_nArtists commonly translate their emotions, perceptions and worldview in their crafts; you can almost tell who an artist is by his works and preferred niche. Today, we feature the works of a renowned Jamaican and international artist/sculpture, Basil Watson.

His crafts are quite fascinating, raw, sensual and rich. The perfection in his works portray a long-term of consistent practice.

“For almost 30 years, he has been translating life’s important attributes – positive emotions and attitudes, the spirit of freedom and spontaneity, strength, sensuality, energy and vigor– into finely crafted pieces of art. Born in Kingston, Jamaica, the son of internationally acclaimed painter Barrington Watson, it was a natural progression for him to pursue studies at the Jamaica School of Art (now the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts). Through a strong foundation in drawing, Basil eventually discovered sculpture and with excitement and enthusiasm found it an excellent medium to explore his fascination for the human form. Through the exploration of the language of the body, Basil depicts exaggerated movement or subtle gestures in the expression of moods, thoughts and feelings. Sensuality has always been a strong underlying element within his work and while he sculpts both sexes, his works often celebrate and radiate a great appreciation of women, whether in thematic pieces, athletic movement or intimate studies of the model.”
