Trinidad and Tobago: Paper carnival

Richard Bolai posts photos of the results of Trinidadian Carnival artist Marlon Griffith's work at the Mino Paper Village Artist Residency in Japan. Griffith created carnival costumes and other objects out of washi, a variety of handmade paper.


  • Richard at thebookmann brings us Playing Mas With Washi, highlighting the designs of Trinidadian artist Marlon Griffith at the Mino Paper Village Artist Residency in Japan. Interesting reading …

    I’ve discovered thebookmann, who focuses on art in Trinidad and Tobago and around the world, thanks to Georgia Popplewell at Global Voices.
