Mallica “Kapo” Reynolds

Mallica Reynolds, OD (10 February 1911 – 24 February 1989), better known by the adopted name “Kapo”, was a Jamaican artist and religious leader. Considered one of the greatest artists in Jamaica’s “Intuitives” artistic movement, Kapo’s religious beliefs were reflected in his work. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mallica_Reynolds

“I was born in 1911 on the 10th day of February in Bynloss St. Catherine. My fathers’ name was David Reynolds, and my mother’s name before marriage was Rebecca Morgan. My father married her when I was nine years old. I also went to school when I was nine. At the age of 12, I received the spirit of conversion. I was then reading in fifth standard. At the age of 16 I left school, I was not bad at reading, and I did not love drawing. Drawing days, I used to prefer to go and work in the garden. Before the death of all my sisters and brothers, we all used to play together, and go to church and school. I could remember as far back as my creeping days, and 40 years ago when I started as a self-taught artist scraping on a stone with homemade tools, never having seen before a piece of sculpture in any medium. Then I started working steadfastly without any instruction. Happily for me, guiding lights appeared in my life, a number of prominent men who took interest in my work and encouraged me ”——-Kapo

Title: β€œI’m Not Afraid!”
Poem:
In life- I tried my best
Not that I was better than the rest
I must confess that THIS test!!!
It’s just that it burned a hole inside my chest
Engulfed my core like a fiery vest
Like I was invited as an honorable guest
Grabbed my heart till I became distressed
Tore it down and to the left- Southwest!
As I attempted to overcome, I began to digress
So I prayed, I begged, I began to request
Asked my dear Jehovah… Can I win this contest… surpass the rest… move pass unrest and make swift progress… through this conquest and obtain His approval as He once eloquently expressed???
He warmly addressed:
β€œMy child why do you think I invest…
In you- I’ve assessed…
A true heart-that you possess!
So He Refined me like Gold, I can attest!
Embraced me throughout it ALL, I’m Blessed!
