Tropical Realism

Born in the St. Vincent countryside, Calvert Jones believes SVG is a great place to be an artist. His subject matter is broad, and ranges from local scenes, still life and landscapes to regional/international political, religious, entertainment and educational icons, scenes of Caribbean sports and past times like playing marbles, fishing and West Indies cricket.

His art reflects all this with a bold and vibrant colour pallet and the loose flow and weave of the brush strokes which are synonymous with our laid back Caribbean lifestyle which is why he refers to his style as “Tropical Realism”.

Calvert is also a talented photographer, interior design consultant, director of photography, entrepreneur and restauranteur.

Calvert's painting, "The Struggle, The Scenery" was featured on the cover of the 2018 edition of Ins & Outs of St. Vincent & the Grenadines
