Young Belizean artists team up for BAFFU

Kyran Gabourel

A team of talented, young Belizean artists, expressive in both spoken word poetry and the visual medium, has launched an art exhibition at the Image Factory.  They are an eccentric bunch versed in spitting rhymes, as well as smearing paint on canvas.  While the idea of not hanging up the individual pieces prior to the launch today was a bit strange, we caught the lyricists in cipher as they took turns delivering poetry in spoken word.

“With the art exhibit we have here the magazine itself, this will be the e-copy so you’re only able to find it on the internet and tomorrow is the event at seven at the Image Factory.  So we’d like to invite everyone to come out.”


Isani Cayetano

“What will the event itself contain or pertain to?”


Kyran Gabourel

“It’s a renaissance of art, it’s just a renaissance of art and everybody needs to come if they want to see it.  We’ve been advertising it on Facebook and all of that so you can follow those records and you will see what all we have in store for you.”


Isani Cayetano

“How did the name BAFFU come about?  I know in Creole it’s a term used widely but those it have any significance here?”


Kyran Gabourel

“Yes it has a lot of significance that’s why we’re using it as the name of the Magazine.”
