Mallica “Kapo” Reynolds
Mallica Reynolds, OD (10 February 1911 – 24 February 1989), better known by the adopted name “Kapo”, was a Jamaican artist and religious leader. Considered one of the greatest artists in Jamaica’s “Intuitives” artistic movement, Kapo’s religious beliefs were reflected in his work. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mallica_Reynolds
“I was born in 1911 the 10th day of February in Bynloss St. Catherine. My fathers name was David Reynolds, my mothers name before marriage was Rebecca Morgan. My father married her when I was nine years old. I also went to school when I was nine. At the age of 12, I received the spirit of conversion. I was then reading in fifth standard. At the age of 16 I left school, I was not bad at reading, and I did not love drawing. Drawing days, I used to prefer to go and work in the garden. Before the death of all my sisters and brothers, we all used to play together, go to church and school. I could remember as far back as my creeping days, and 40 years ago when I started as a self-taught artist scraping on a stone with homemade tools, never having seen before piece of sculpture in any medium. Then I started working steadfastly without any instruction. Happily for me, guiding lights appeared in my life, a number of prominent men who took interest in my work and encouraged me ”——-Kapo

Title: “I’m Not Afraid!” Poem: In life- I tried my best Not that I was better than the rest I must confess that THIS test!!! It’s just that it burned a hole inside my chest Engulfed my core like a fiery vest Like I was invited as an honorable guest Grabbed my heart till I became distressed Tore it down and to the left- Southwest! As I attempted to overcome, I began to digress So I prayed, I begged, I began to request Asked my dear Jehovah… Can I win this contest… surpass the rest… move pass unrest and make swift progress… through this conquest and obtain His approval as He once eloquently expressed??? He warmly addressed: “My child why do you think I invest… In you- I’ve assessed… A true heart-that you possess! So He Refined me like Gold, I can attest! Embraced me throughout it ALL, I’m Blessed! • By @artist_ria Acrylic, charcoal, soft pastels and gel pen🎨 • 5th piece in the Exo-Butterfly Series ©️Artist Ria 2021

Born in 1983 at Berekum, a city in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana West Africa, Kumi Samuel is a sculptor living and working in Kumasi, Ghana. His commissioned sculptures are seen in various parts of Ghana of which the most famous is the 26 feet x 44 feet wall mural at the KOFCANS Hotel in Obuasi. The Hallmark of his work is the realistic rendition of subject through which he seeks to revive the indigenous/cultural and ethnic subjects with a global and artistic discourse. In making great projection of the future, the past becomes an arsenal of asserts and an inevitable archival reference necessitated by the present. He therefore believes, things that remain to remind man of what is lost is equally important. Through his works, he interrogates and appropriates from the sociocultural space via the activation of visual forms to traditional ideologies, mythologies, proverbs and cultural activities that are lost or seem to be diminishing from the society. His practice also provides a new dialectical and conceptual context and direction for the preservation of some of those cultural activities that have seemingly lost their glory or cultural relevance, and hence serves as a reminder to the people of their ancestry history. Kumi is currently working on a collection (project) towards his debut solo exhibition “The Redeemed” which comprises of a series of subjects that give a reflection on childhood memories. Inspired by sub-Sahara Africa figurative sculpture, he is of the opinion that though ‘static’ and ‘un-proportional’ they have more to offer in terms of style, technique and process, historically, theoretically or conceptually, these couple with the western classical realist cannon of their rendition gives another rise to another conversation of Afro-hyperrealism.
