Anderson is a British painter who lives and works in London. He is known for exploring his Jamaican heritage through depictions of verdant Caribbean landscapes, tangled into abstractions rich with cultural references. He explores the complexity of growing up in England while desiring to reconnect with familial roots, which he accomplishes through a dedication to the medium of painting itself. The artist also often works through photographs rather than memory, which solidifies the feeling of distance that is woven throughout his oeuvre. Anderson received his MA in painting from the Royal College of Art in London and completed a Caribbean Contemporary Arts Residency Program in Trinidad in 2002. His works can be found in the collections of the Yale Center for British Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Tate Gallery in London, among others.
