Art is life. Art from the heart is the life of Ikahl.
Jamaican-born artist Ikahl Beckford is a Bronx New Yorker and valued contributor to the world of fine art. Embraced globally, his style is known for its trans-dimensional expression that reflects the creation, existence and evolution of human thought and eternal life. Ikahl is art.
Creativity is a lifetime passion, expressing my total experiences through drawings, paintings, music and poetry. Diverse in execution with various media, subject matters, culminate an inexhaustible portfolio of styles and techniques. Personal gratification comes not only by financial gain, but from the responses evoked by audiences globally. Thankful for the gift to present life in unique circumstances.
