Jamaica has some of the most exquisite artwork in the Caribbean. The bulk of Jamaican artwork has been executed since 1940, when the yearning for independence and a sense of national destiny colored many aspects of the country's life. Whereas reggae, the national musical form, is strongly influenced by a subculture (the Rastafarians), Jamaican painting is much wider-ranging and diverse.
Many tourist arriving on any part of the island can get to see the rich culture displayed through wood carvings, paintings, basket weaving..and so forth.
Below are samples of what is termed, "yard art."
