Abbebe Payne – Jamaican Visual Artist

Abbebe’s paintings are quite shocking if you’ve never seen a birth happen, more so if that birth wasn’t a natural birth, you might actually be surprised at what you see. He experienced 2 natural birth with his “Empress” and thought so much of the process that he honors it with 5 painted canvases.

While his art is most definitely his reality, he is not unaware of the social position that he takes on by being an artist.
