SEEN AROUND TOWN: DEON SIMONE’S ARTWORK FROM UPTOWN TO DOWNTOWN
Deon Simone and Jamaica Nice par at MAXBROWN, 64 Hope Road.
The new MAXBROWN location at 64 Hope Road in Kingston (an uptown location it shares with Trio Restaurant) got some colour recently with an original Jamaica Nice display painted by Deon Simone. The 2020 Prime Minister's Youth Award winner for contributions to Arts and Culture is also an original member of the Water Lane street art collective based in downtown Kingston. Water Lane hosts three of Deon’s murals and Rae Town yet another.

Water Lane is the brainchild of Kingston Creative, the community organization with a long term creative plan for Kingston’s development. Kingston Creative has so far curated over 20 murals by local and international visual artists. The visual works are drawing attention from art fans, music video producers and models. When you visit, a convenient starting point for the Water Lane experience is FNB/Swiss Store, located at the corner of Water Lane and Church Street.
If you can't visit Water Lane right away Jamaica Nice would like to send artwork by Deon Simone to you!
