Old Limon Town, Costa Rica
Costa Rican artist, Enrique Campos, although not of Afro-Caribbean extract himself, lived for many years during his youth in the Caribbean coastal areas of Limón Province. His medium, pen and ink, lends itself wonderfully to such scenes as this one, of Costa Rica’s south eastern coastline and the Afro-Caribbean population who call it home.
This particular scene depicts a typical scene in this lush part of Costa Rica: local plantation company workers’ homes in a row with the looming rainforest behind the manicured patios of this neighbourhood typical of the region.
A self-taught artist, Campos, with an almost architectural attention to detail and graphic flourish, creates dense scenes which transport one to these tropical climes of Costa Rica where a Jamaican influenced English can be heard spoken along streets lined with the distinctive wood-construction vernacular of this province.
