My name is Amani Heywood and I'm a Bronx-born Trinidadian artist. I use my love of fashion, philosophy, and architecture to invoke a feeling that I then translate into an abstract mindscape.
As a child, I was diagnosed with dyslexia. This, made me see letters morph into the swirls and squiggles we see today in my work. It always felt like I wasn't reading, more like interpreting these symbols means so I can move through the world. Now that I have an understanding of what my brain was doing, I like to show people what I saw then now.
Poring, dripping, throwing, and spraying are only some of the application techniques I use to apply color to whatever object I’m painting. Matching and blending colors until I have a photo that represents my feelings is what I love.
