Background

With a Photographer father, and an Interior Designer as mother, Yannick was influenced by art from an early age. With a vivid imagination inspired by movies and television, he always had the desire to recreate the sublime and awe inspiring feeling he received from his favourite shows.

Working a large stage show such as Reggae Sumfest from as early as 2008, and studying at the Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing arts, Yannick is not only trained, but experienced in Art and Design. At the EMC, Yannick studied to achieve a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design and Illustration, but while there taught himself the art of videography.

Yannick has a passion for creating work that impacts viewers not just on a visceral level, but also an emotional one, this desire is what motivates him to not just focus on one medium but incorporate multiple skills that can deliver not just isolated works, but entire presentations.
