Paintings of Trinidad Carnival.
About the AuthorBrian Wong Won
brianwongwon Miami, Florida, USA
Brian Wong Won is a Trinidadian born artist known for his bright colors, expressionistic compressions of space and distortions of architectural space. His subjects tend to be Trinidad Carnival and the local vintage architecture; he works primarily in the water-based medium of Gouache.
He has been noted by both collectors and critics to be the only one to fully capture the spirit and feeling of the Carnival festivities via his vivid palette and expressive playful use of perspective. His Carnival paintings tend to be satirical, expressively tongue and cheek and very detailed, which also carries into his architectural subjects, of which he is also well know for.
Brian was born in Trinidad in 1970, educated at St. Mary’s College in Port-of-Spain, until 1987 where he left to study art in the USA. He obtained both an AA in Graphic Design and a BFA in Painting & Art History. Brian was also a graphic designer and art teacher and now lives in Florida,
