Jackie's Port of Spain Murals

The atrium at BP Trinidad and Tobago

Although the atrium of British Petroleum is light,high and airy, the glare from the skylight makes Mr.Hinkson's work difficult to enjoy in its totality at certain times of day. However it is remarkable to see so much of his work filling such a large space with such ease. Ours is not a positive tradition of keeping and maintaining murals by artists. One has just to think about Carlisle Change's work alone. Although this is not a public mural, but privately owned, this work is best seen from the elevators as only then can one actually really appreciate the many levels to the panels of the paintings. To do so the general public would have to go during the week and ask for access,as the elevators are not accessible on the weekend. - Adele
