Kishan Munroe is a Bahamian Visual Artist. Recently he was asked, in The Nassau Guardian’s Arts & Culture’s 20 Questions, what he considered to be the artist’s role in society.
“The artist’s role in society is to, at times, represent the reality of their landscapes (social, political, spiritual etc), to act as catalysts to change those environments by addressing pertinent issues, to create other worlds, to escape these realities, to spiritually heal the broken and downtrodden, to awaken the latent consciousness of the people and to help thrust them into the future.”
