One of Grenada’s best visual artists, Nahshon Jeremiah, has made his contribution to the independence celebrations.
What can be dubbed as the largest Grenadian flag has recently been installed within the big parish of St Andrew, to complement the recently completed ‘Cocoa to Chocolate Garden’ mural.
Nahshon says the aim is to inspire young people to carry on his artistic creations, while nurturing their own creative abilities.
This is the third major mural Nahshon has completed, which is part of his beautifying Grenada project.
He tells GBN that he plans to move unto the sister isles of Carriacou and Petit Martinique.
The visual artist says the target is nine murals, two in each parish, with St Patrick as his next destination within mainland Grenada.
Nahshon says his beautifying Grenada project is a nonprofit venture as he gives back to his country just in time for Independence.
He says the support received from Grenadians as well as the corporate community has been welcomed.
The visual artist told GBN the feedback from his fellow Grenadians has been a motivating factor which has encouraged him to continue following his dreams.
With the visual arts industry not being as lucrative as it should be, Nahshon’s advice for fellow artists is to follow their dreams while viewing the industry in a way that brings income to them.
