Navarro Newton

Navarro Newton

Born in New Providence and raised on the island of Andros, Navarro Newton fell in love with nature and the creative arts at a young age. In 2013 he began his formal education in Visual Arts at the College of the Bahamas. He was then awarded the ‘Popop Junior Residency Prize’ in 2016, which lead to his first solo show called ‘Metanoia’ (2017). His second solo exhibition, ‘Synesthesia,’ was hosted by The Current Gallery & Art Center at Baha Mar in 2020, followed by ‘Channeling Kronos: Existence’ in 2021.

Newton’s creative practice is informed by the potential of a medium to create subtle nuances in opacity and texture. The work builds a narrative from shapes suggested by the movement of media on a surface, directed through incidental and imagined compositions. Newton continues to create work based on theories of existence and time.
