Here's our top ten list of artists. Click here for a more extensive list on artists in Barbados.

 

Mrs. Marilda Weatherhead

Marilda Weatherhead moved to Barbados from Venezuela in the late 1960s and only decided to try her hand at art sometime later in 1987. This trial quickly turned into a passion and soon enough a love for oils and soft pastels developed. This love and passion deepened and hence the birth of Frangipani Art Gallery. A world of art awaits you once you enter this gallery which is located at The Sugar Cane Club, Hotel and Spa on Barbados' north coast. The paintings and works of Mrs. Weatherhead have created a hub of attraction as she enjoys focussing her attention on a variety of subjects inclusive of but not limited to, ballerinas, banana trees and people.


Fielding Babb

Fielding Babb is renowned as a well respected artist on the island of Barbados. Water colour became his specialty in the early seventies (70s) but his penchant for oils took over by the early eighties (80s). His work is a true reflection of what life is like in Barbados as he conveys this message through his techniques of short diagonal strokes.

Dr. Lance Bannister

Dr. Lance Bannister, is a medical doctor by profession but has also developed an unusual art form using steel and other metal parts, usually from cars which have been abandoned and are unused. Along with conceptualizing the items and making them, he has established a sort of theme park. A probable delight for any science buff or imaginative child, Dr Bannister's "Iron Gardens" is located in Perry Gap, St. Michael, a road adjacent to the Insurance Corporation of Barbados on Roebuck Street. Through this effort and labour of love and recycling, it is clear that Dr Bannister has made his contribution to safe-guarding the environment of his native Barbados.
