People around the world are listening to reggae songs and this leads to peace.
Reggea always the music of peace and I think we need word peace. With music, patience, passion and love we’ll have word peace.
In this poster, I try to explain this. The color of our skin, what religion we belive, what gender we are doesn’t matter anymore. We just need peace and love.
In my design, I have depicted a dreadlocked woman with her hair covering her face, wearing a blue set of headphones, a red shirt with a heart, and gold charms in her hair. Above her head reads ” We’re Jammin!” in green and red, with golden music notes floating. Finally, she has pink lips and a white line across her neck showing the vibrations flowing through her from the music.
This poster is titled as ‘Freedom’ as it depicts the freedom of mind from all the sorrow and distress, by listening to the Reggae music. The birds represent the freedom and are colored as red, yellow, and green which are the colors of the Rasta flag. The poster also depicts the growth of the mind. As Bob Marley quotes “None but ourselves can free our minds.”, the poster depicts a man holding the top part of his head to free his mind from all the negative thoughts.
This is a poster made with love, starring my dog named Twiinky, which was very helpful to be able to transmit on the poster that you can enjoy this musical genre regardless of who you are, because reggae is expressed from the heart to which it opens to listen to it and enjoy it.
The poster idea comes from Bob Marley’s”Stir it up”, a famous reggae song. Reggae music consists predominantly of instrumental remixes of existing recordings , just like stir and mix many materials together. Finally, the poster shows reggae music cozy vibes and makes us feel free at the same time.
While getting to know reggae better I discovered Desmond Dekker’s song called Israelites, I fell in love with the song. Great music doesn’t age. Israel, and Africa, are important to Rastafarians and reggae so I decided to paint this gorgeous bird, a hoopoe, Israel’s national bird. (I didn’t draw the Jamaican’s hummingbird because somebody already did it.) Reggae can make you to fly over the oceans just to enjoy the music the fullest on its birthplace, Jamaica.
The combination of Chinese traditional dance and African tribes conveys the concept of reggae music.
The lion, the dove symbolizing peace and the text elements of reggae music were integrated into the design of the poster of reggae music festival. Red, yellow and green, representing the colors of Jamaica, were used as the theme colors. The design showed the good times brought by music and peace and people’s longing for a better life.
Meet reggae and see the world in a different way.
