Welcome to the art works of Jamahl Pollard, a site that is different from the rest.
Friends have asked why I called the site 4D art. It stands for 4th dimensional Art.
I feel that my work comes straight from the heart. It is a journey into the inner depths of the conscious and unconscious mind. I explore my interactions with the mainstream community as a person with a disability.
Even though I am vision impaired (categorised as legally blind), I am the creator of these works. With 6.4% peripheral vision in my left eye and the right eye being artificial, I can see in great detail up to 30cms away and after that I see only colourful shapes with little to no detail, depending on the size and distance of the objects around me. The use of fairly strong reading glasses and sometimes a magnifying glass enables me to create the work. For most of my observations I use a monocular scope (half a binocular) to view things from a distance.
