Irie is the Jamaican term for everything is good, higher self, and serenity.

A Bungalow is lodging associated with high status and exotic connotations.

As Jamaica turns 50, Irie Bungalow is a hip haven to celebrate all the gifts that Jamaica shares with the world.

A civilisation is not to be assessed merely through the outstanding achievement of individuals within it. But clearly an abundance of individual excellence in various fields of human endeavor is an indicator of the progress of civilisation: The Nobel Laureate Sir Arthur Lewis, George Beckford and Havelock Brewster in Literature, the novelist George Lamming, Wilson Harris and V.S. Naipaul; the esteemed medical practitioners Sir Harry Anamanthudo, Professor Mickey Waldron, Sir George Alleyne and Cecil Cyrus; the famed entrepreneurs Butch Stewart, the Goddards and the Matalons, the international cricketers Sir Frank Worrell, Sir Garfield Sobers and Sir Vivian Richards; the distinguished intellectuals CLR James, Walter Rodney, Frantz Fanon, Lloyd Best and Edourd Glissant; the historians Elsa Goveia, Douglas Hall, Woodville Marshall and Hilary Beckles; the educators Sir Philip Sherlock, Elsie Payne and Lopey; the lawyers Sir Hugh Wooding, Sir Henry Forde; F.O.C Harris, Telford Georges, Sir Vincent Flossiac and Alec Hughes; the athletes Donald Quarrie, Alberto Juantorena, Haysley Crawford and Merlene Ottey; the political leaders Grantley Adams, the Manleys, Errol Barrow, Cheddi Jagan, Eric Williams, Robert Bradshaw and Fidel Castro; the singers Bob Marley, Mighty Sparrow, Beckett and Gabby, the creative artists of all kinds; Edna Manley, E. Mannette, Tanny Peters, Louise Bennett, Olive Levin and Blazer Williams; the poets Edward “Kamau” Braithwaite, Nicolas Guillen, Aimé Césaire; the large number of individuals of distinction in the fields of engineering, architecture, music, painting, drama, science, technology, nursing, journalism, social work, and a host of others too numerous to mention.

“My ongoing body of work explores constructions of the masculine within popular culture -while using Jamaican dancehall culture as platform for this discourse. My works seeks to measure the masculine by looking at how popular culture as contributed to these transformations.  The early work looked at the fashionable practice of skin bleaching, followed by investigations of so-called ‘ bling culture’ and its relationship to the masculine within an urban context. While still making references to dancehall culture, my work raises larger questions about beauty, gender ideals and constructs of masculinity within so called ‘popular black’ culture. It examines the similarities and differences between ‘camp aesthetics’ – the use of feminine gendered adornment - in the construct of the urban masculine within popular culture. This body of work raises questions about body politics, performance of gender, gender and beauty, beauty and stereotyping, race and beauty, and body and ritual.
