Nurse Signs

In 2015 I created the @NurseSigns instagram account to document Jamaica's brilliant hand painted signage. The feed focuses primarily on the roadside signs promoting the island’s non stop carnival of dancehall and reggae music events but also shows the ubiquitous inventive hand lettering that adorns everything from rum bars to car washes to churches. Nurse Signs is named in honor of Westemoreland’s premier signman, Cleark “Nurse” James, and works to spread awareness and generate income for Jamaica’s many talented sign painters. Follow us at @nursesigns
