Errol Lloyd - A Life in Colour
With this timely retrospective, we celebrate the lifework of pioneering Jamaican artist, Errol Lloyd (b1943) and his contributions to the visual and literary culture in Black Britain. In the largest survey to date, all aspects of his artist career will be presented, including works rarely or never exhibited before. His iconic portraits of nominal figures such as poet James Berry and activist-scholar Walter Rodney and women in his family.
Also featured are Lloyd’s bronze busts of friends and colleagues including writers Linton Kwesi Johnson and John La Rose, as well as conceptual works inspired by his travels and lively scenes from Notting Hill Carnival over the years.
Lloyd has exhibited his paintings widely and has illustrated and written twenty books for children, many of which will be on display alongside his sketchbooks and personal ephemera.
