About Alicia-Pearl Cato

 
 
  • Biography

    My work is heavily influenced by music and the media. These ever-changing influences ensure that I constantly react to what is going on around me, be it the success of a black musician, or a discriminatory comment made by a leading world company. I often create responses to these events by combining textiles, text-based art and portraiture to generate questions and curiosity around these events and the effect they have on our society.

    I use my paintings to propose controversial statements and provoke conversations about race with those around me. With a strong focus on identity and the celebration of black culture, and by using my Afro-Caribbean heritage as an underlying stimulus, I explore the themes of racism, feminism, gender and their stereotypes.
