Izia Lindsay is a mixed media artist who explores with both digital and traditional media. His artwork addresses symbolism in Caribbean iconography that is rooted in tradition but interpreted with contemporary ideas. Caribbean iconography is used as a basis to create his multi-layered artistic narratives. His subject matter tackles issues of identity and class in a post-colonial society. His research stems from material culture, indigenous societies, traditions and the ever-changing landscape of the Caribbean. Lindsay uses bold, geometric shapes that juxtapose and intersperse to form his multilayered artistic pieces. Lines and shapes are conceptually layered and can be characterized as controlled naturalism. The thematic whole is a cultural narrative reproducing the dualities of his turbulent, cosmopolitan, Caribbean life.
Lindsay has also been working in the creative industry for over ten years and is currently an Adjunct Lecturer at the University of Miami and Florida International University where he teaches graphic design, multimedia, illustration and typography. He is also known for his large colorful mural installations that can be seen at Wynwood Arts District, University of the West Indies, University of Miami, Suriname, and Barbados to name a few.
