Harry Bryden has persevered over an illustrious career to become one of Trinidad & Tobago’s foremost watercolorists as well as an awarded costume designer. Over the years his vivid artwork continues to capture the natural beauty of the islands in vibrant colour.
In Colour of Memory Bryden recalls his life; from his early years as a quiet child in a pastoral St. Ann’s, to a young man pressured by familial expectations, through his accomplishments in business, art and the stage.
Bryden: Colour of Memory is a nostalgic recounting of a bountiful life, as well as a window into the psyche of a Caribbean artist.
