Makemba H.B. Kunle

Trinidad’s carnival is both a cultural influence and inspiration for Makemba.

"I’d say my main influence is carnival painting."


Colors, jumping up and down at you, is ‘free up’, and it’s sometimes when you look at the painting, it’s like atoms and molecules mixing up together.  I would like [people] them to be inspired, that is it, if not stunned.”
