The Domino Players

About the Artwork

The Caribbean domino players sit in Maida Hill Market Square in West London. They are lively and sometimes noisy. They drink a tot of rum, smoke a little weed, laugh a lot and slam down the dominoes. The domino players bring the cultural delights, skills, history, landscape, vigor and intelligence of the Islands to decorate and enhance London’s cultural, ethical, intellectual and spiritual vibration.

1 thought on “The Domino Players”

  1. So much of a present story and past history captured in one glowing image. Youth and age, West Indies and West London, seeds of flowers and ganja weed. Hear the slap of tiles, but imagine the trumpet of the elephant. Oh, Domino!
