Lennon Jno-Baptiste Bio

About The Artist

Born in Dominica in the West Indies and raised in New York City, Lennon Jno-Baptiste's work is based on the legends and icons of African-American history—characters like the Hottentot Venus, the Chickenman/Griffin, the Gorilla and the Boxer—that may have contributed to our construction of racial and cultural stereotypes. By placing these characters in a number of historical and symbolic landscapes, he examines the repetitive problems that plague history, including war, segregation, and racism.
