Embah’s conversation in spelling

At the studio, a centre run by artists in building 7, once known as CCA7, Embah is about to leave for the Parish Artists in Residence exhibition which includes his work along with Willie Chen, Jackie Hinkson, Eddie bowen and Sundiata among others. The church, St. Peter’s is commemorating its 320 year anniversary. The building is situated on the cress of a hill in Pointe a Pierre, Trinidad, West Indies.

In June, Embah had a successful exhibition at the White Columns gallery in New York and his studio is bustling with old and new work. Embah’s conversation is about Trinidad’s identity as a pot of pelau with its races, and of spelling, a problem he sees (seas) with the island’s youth.
