Embah shows off iconic works of art
For Cee, an exhibition of works by artist Emheyo Bahabba—better known as Embah—opened on April 13 at Soft Box Art Gallery, in Woodbrook. The show features 35 multi-media works by the veteran artist, known for his unmistakable home-grown style. Embah’s work centres on the cultural history and heritage of T&T. The works on show at For Cee reflect this, along with his adventurous use of materials and presentation.
Cricketers, Carnival masqueraders and panmen, along with mystical and abstract forms inhabit Embah’s canvasses, many of which feature ornate frames and 3-D flourishes. Embah is also a poet and musician.
A poetry reading by the artist was scheduled for Saturday at the gallery. Embah’s For Cee continues until April 28, at Soft Box Gallery, 9 Alcazar Street, Woodbrook.
