Hurvin Anderson's paintings engage with the traditions of landscape painting and the history of abstraction. His pictorial world has been shaped by his background. Born in Birmingham of Jamaican parents, Anderson's paintings draw on the influence of both regions.

Here the artist shares the inspiration and ideas behind his paintings, and how he uses photography within his work.

See his work in the Life Between Islands: Caribbean-British Art 1950s – Now exhibition, on at Tate Britain until 3 April 2022.
