From the transparent water-colour painting titled 'Bamboo Rafting' to the rolling 'Blue Mountains peak' in deliberate acrylic, former newspaper reporter Wandeka Gayle has started on a mission to represent rustic Jamaica through art to an international audience.
Gayle, who is from St Catherine, recently hosted her second solo exhibition at Andrews University in Michigan, United States under the theme 'Around Jamaica in 18 Frames,' showing Jamaican scenes in landscapes and seascapes. This comes six months after her debut solo exhibition in October last year where she showed 12 vivid paintings of Jamaican flora and fruits.
