John Beadle

John Beadle was born in the Bahamas in 1964 and grew up on the island of New Providence. Beadle is a multi-discipline artist whose work draws from his involvement in his community’s cultural practices and the intimate observation of that space. Beadle mines his environment for information to inform his material use, utterances/narratives and direction… at times the material is metaphorical other times, physical. For over thirty years he has been instrumental in transforming the contemporary Bahamian art landscape by forming art collectives and working toward a creolization of his art practice. Beadle says, “I want my art to communicate with the same patois and poetry as my tongue.”
