Functions, occupations and activities

Jamaican visual artist. A carpenter by trade, he began painting and carving in the late 1960’s. He was a self-ordained priest of a sect related to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and was inspired by a vision to decorate a small church he had built with his paintings and carved ceremonial objects. He began participating in exhibitions and, in the early 1970’s, received several awards for his work. Because of the close connection between Brown’s artistic and spiritual life, his imagery drew heavily upon his spiritual experiences (including his interest in Rastafarianism) and his visions.
