Brian Wong Won unveils Diable

Carnival artist Brian Wong Won unveiled his 2007 Carnival offering on Tuesday evening before an intimate audience at Horizons Art Gallery, St James.

Titled Diable, the show is a collection 34 paintings done in the Miami-based artist’s favoured gouache-on-paper style.

Wong Won, who comes to T&T every Carnival, was on hand to greets his fans and chat with guests, which included Jamaican High Commissioner Peter Black, Dr Marie Advani, honorary consul of the Philippines, and Vel Lewis, curator of the National Museum.

Wong Won used the private viewing to showcase characters from his J’Ouvert band, also called Diable, who paraded to the sounds of Bullet Tacarigua Tassa Group.

The exhibition ends February 17.
