My name is Amani Heywood and I’m a Bronx-born Trinidadian artist. I use my love of fashion, philosophy, and architecture to invoke a feeling that I then translate into an abstract mindscape.
Within every mindscape, I try to bring the viewer out of the physical space and into my thoughts. The work requires you to look closely and peel back each layer of paint which reveals new information and questions.
Poring, dripping, throwing, and spraying are only some of the application techniques I use to apply color to whatever object I’m painting. Matching and blending colors until I have a photo that represents my feelings is what I love.
