From Wikipedia

Isaiah James Boodhoo was a Trinidadian painter and writer.Biography Born in the northeastern town of Sangre Grande in Trinidad, Boodhoo received a governmental scholarship in 1958 which allowed him to study art at England's Brighton College of Art; there, he studied disciplined, formal techniques. By his return home in 1964, his style was non-objective, typical of the period. In 1968 he again received the opportunity to study abroad, this time at Central Washington University and Indiana University. Here he was introduced to Abstract Expressionism. He also encountered disillusionment with the Vietnam War, which was to inform his later work.
