Jamal J Ifill

Simple and minimalistic are two words used to describe art yet it’s more than what meets the eye. For the past ten years I’ve focused on creating the ‘marriage’ of the technique with the finished piece.

My art doesn’t speak to a particular aspect of economic or social status but it expresses the inspirations of my life growing up in the Caribbean. My inspirations aren’t just about beauty, it’s more when closer look is taken.

I believe in the functionality of art. Imperfect perfection.
