Photo Gallery For Donald Jackie Hinkson By: Kaela Albert
Donald Jackie Hinkson was born in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago on September 13, 1942 . He is 72 years old and is very passionate about art. He grew up in Cobo Town with his dad, Lennox Hinkson who was a travelling officer, and his mum, Jeanette Hinkson. Hinkson was the third of six children; four boys and two girls. In 1967, when he was 47 years old he married Caryl Blache-Fraser.
Together they had two sons and one
daughter. He taught at Queens Royal College,Trinidad but in 1986, he left
his job to become a full time painter
allowing him to travel all over the
Caribbean.





Hinkson's first school was Richmond Street Boys Primary School.That school was were he first started showing an interest in art by copying images he saw from comic books.

From there he went to the Queens Royal College also in Trinidad, which is where he started using oil paints. While he was attending there he also joined the Trinidad Art Society and had his first art exhibition.

He then achieved a scholarship from the french government to go to Academie Julien for a year. This was from 1963 to 1964.

Afterwards, he got another scholarship, this time from the Canadian Government to study at The University Of Alberta from 1965 to 1970. There he gained a, Bachelor Of Fine Arts Degree and a Diploma In Education.

Hinkson's paintings normally are
of landscape. They are of a
representational style.
Watercolours are his favourite
medium and are what he is most
famous for, but he also uses
acrylics and oils. His
paintings are normally not
very detailed.
Hinkson was inspired by many things.
One was his hometown.The people
and the scenery he saw played a
major role in his art since that is
mainly what he paints about. Also,
as his dad was a traveling officer,he
would view many different landscapes
when he traveled with him.He was
also inspired by many French
Impressionists, particularly Paul
Cessna and many English
watercolourists. He was fond
of Minimalism, Pop Art and Abstract
Impression and sculptures.


One of his first exhibitions was in 1960 for Five Young Artists in Trinidad.
He also had a mural-sized exhibition in The Queens Royal College Hall in 1984.
He had another exhibition at the Mall Gallery in London with paintings done in oils and watercolours and drawings.
He has exhibited in Paris and Canada as well.
Dereck Walcott describes Hinkson as follows,
" I can pay Hinkson no deeper compliment than
to summon the same admiration and technical astonishment for him as I do for Wilson Homer."
DONALD JACKIE HINKSON
I really like Hinkson's work because it looks really beautiful and tropical. I like the style he uses and the effect the watercolours give his paintings.
The painting I have chosen to recreate is North Coast Trinidad. I chose this one because it's a simplistic view but still captivating.
