  • Canadian Artist TALWST is excited to present ‘NUBIANS’ in joint efforts with TD’s Then & Now Series, to help spread knowledge of Black history and identity through visual art. This project subscribes to the apt notion that a little can go a long way.

    A Trinidadian-Canadian identity ignites provoking work from Toronto-based artist, TALWST, who explores the Black identity in North America and Western Art. The collection of hand-held dioramas, housed in reclaimed ring boxes, work their way through what it has meant to be ‘Black’ throughout history. This body of work meticulously and thoughtfully seeks to revoke the notion of Black as ‘other,’ as it has been repeatedly presented and accepted as norm in Western art tradition. Through the artist’s use of a monochromatic palette, the viewer must train the eye to ascertain the Black figure within the compact work. TALWST elaborates, “Through the primary use of various tones of black in my work, I seek to demonstrate and celebrate the very depth of ‘Blackness,’ in homage of the many great artist that have come from the African diaspora.”
