Thomas Haskell

“Talented, Dedicated, Meticulous and inspired, Thomas Haskell is a figurative sculptor and writer with significant imaginative and observational gifts. His recent graduate thesis work (2017) comments incisively on identity, history, and spectacle through the lens of contemporary Trinidadian Carnival and takes up issues of Colonialism, political struggle, and resurgence in dark, fanciful, celebratory style.”​ ~ Bonnie Devine, Associate Professor, OCAD University.
