May Meeting

Friday, May 20, 2016


YRNEH GABON BROWN is a Jamaican-born, Los Angeles-based visual artist who has lived and worked in the United States, Europe, Africa, Japan and the Caribbean.  Yrneh's art is informed by his world-view of socio-political concerns, which are eloquently reflected in a variety of media, including photography, collage, clay, sculpture and performance.

Passionate about using his art to educate people, Yrneh states that his goal is "to first capture an audience's mind, then secondly provoke thoughts which will transform into conversations and inspire the audience to delve into the deepest recesses of the mind." He has achieved this goal most recently in "Visibly Invisible,"  the result of his research and documentation of the devastating treatment of people affected with albinism in Tanzania, Jamaica and the United States.

Yrneh is a graduate of the Roski School of Art and Design at the University of Southern California; has worked as an actor, director, producer and creative director; and is currently pursuing his MFA in Public Practice at Otis School of Art and Design.
