Wilfred Limonious (1949–99) was one of Jamaica’s most prolific graphic artists, producing a significant body of work for the island’s music industry as well as working as a cartoonist for the national newspapers.

About

The exhibition includes reproductions of Limonious’ newspaper comic strips, illustrations for the Jamaican Movement for the Advancement of Literacy (JAMAL), and his distinctive artwork for the burgeoning dancehall scene coming out of 1980s Jamaica. It celebrates a true Jamaican folk artist; a humble man who produced vibrant, hilarious and often outrageous art, but behind the pen was a quiet loner who simply loved to draw.
