Leasho Johnson

Born, 1984 in Montego Bay, Jamaica

From the catalogue Who More Sci-Fi Than Us?: Contemporary Art from the Caribbean: “His father being an artist, he was exposed to art at a tender age while spending time in his father’s studio drawing and painting. Educated at Edna Manley School of the Visual and Performing Arts, he graduated in 2009 with a degree in Visual Communication. Leasho’s works are influenced by 1950s Pop art with a mix of various graffiti/graphic art styles where he seeks to re-establish these aesthetics within the context of his own environment.”
