Keith Partick Duncan Byles
Born February 1927 Ann's, Jamaica.
Died December 2018 Kingston, Jamaica.
An artist par excellence, marketing and communications doyen, strategist, thinker. His vision was for the maturity of art to be recognised at boardroom levels - impacting all areas of communication, commerce, packaging, architecture, decorating, and entertainment.
"My creations capture the happiness, colours, and the energy of the sun-kissed islands of the region," he once said. "I have tried to capture the freshness of the Caribbean life, images, and ideas and transformed them into materials of merchandise and reproduction."
Whoever passed by his studios would see a hand-painted sign which said: 'Art That Is Alive'.
