On Thursday, artist Tarrvi Laaman’s solo exhibition “G-Coffee” opens at Staapli 3 Art Gallery.
“G-Coffee” displays Tarrvi Laaman’s more recent artwork and is his first solo exhibition at Staapli 3 Art Gallery.
The artist describes: “This exhibition work became full of colour and contrast like the Jamaican life. It’s inspired by the people of this island and its nature, warm sun and the Caribbean Sea. The impulse came directly from its nature and local culture – I printed cannabis leaves onto plywood and added bright acrylic colours that are common to Jamaica and which flow and pulsate on the paintings like the local folk music – in the rhythm of reggae.”.
Tarrvi Laamann’s exhibition “G-Coffee” brings the viewers prints and paintings with optimistic impulse and reggae rhythms. Tarrvi’s creative practice is versatile – he has exhibited artwork in Estonia and abroad, published books and music, and his work is in various collections in Estonia, Finland, Jamaica, China and in many more.
Tarrvi Laamann is an Estonian artist and traveller, who already for the last twenty years has considered Jamaica as his second home. He has graduated from graphic art (MA) at the Estonian Academy of Arts and continued his studies in Japan and India. Tarrvi is a visiting lecturer at the Estonian Academy of Arts, Pallas University of Applied Sciences and since 1994, is a member of the Estonian Artists’ Association.
