Going Cold Turkey

So it would seems that Beyonce’s “Formation” video has caused a stir amongst the fragile White culture, sorry I mean the ‘this is an anti-police video’ crew.Republican, Peter King even went so far to say on twitter, “Beyoncé Formation video & #SB50  act was anti-police, shameful. Repeats big lie of Michael Brown innocence. Cops deserve support not criminals”.The fact that a political spokesperson in his position hasn’t galvanised the skills to understand that anti police and police…See More

Profile Information

Name
Joyce
About Me
Joyce Treasure street art name joy2see.

Joyce’s work often looks at identity and heritage working in layers and body forms to slice cultural and iconic imagery together using collage, print and acrylic. You will be able to find familiar monochrome Afrocentric prints and subversive artwork that sometimes appropriates the queen’s image, usually by making her black or giving the image an African layer to represent colonialism and also an extension of her own British and Jamaican heritage.

The hummingbird is her totem animal and it occasionally appears in paintings to portray the lightness of life and presence, as well as being the national bird of Jamaica.
