I was thrilled to attend JAB JAB! a solo art show by @artbyajmal. Currently living in Atlanta, Georgia, Ajmal is mixed media artist of Trinidadian heritage. He's also designed carnival costumes for over 20 years.
The subject of his art covers his experience as a queer black man of Caribbean heritage.
Inspired by the Jab Jab masqueraders in Trinidad carnival and throughout the Caribbean, his art showcases the beauty, intimacy, and brotherhood of the men who play mas. While Carnival has been commercialized, says Ajmal, his exhibit pays tribute to the history of emancipation of slavery.
