Seven artists from across the Caribbean got a chance to express their creativity on a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

The aim was to #DoBiggerThings. Armed with this piece of technology, some of these artists captured life in photographs while others tried their hands at creating artwork.

Jamaican artist, illustrator, and designer Taj Francis used the S Pen ( a special stylus that works with the phone) to give his works an extra edge, enhancing the colours and the details of his creations.

Chanua Johnson from Trinidad and Tobago, gets her inspiration from the desire to travel, slow life and nature. She said that using the Galaxy Note 8 has given her the ability to take photographs of her trips as well as draw scenery without using a brush.

From Bahamas, Jamaal Rolle, who is a visual artist, drew portraits in full of colour and, according to him, the details were sharp and impeccable. He is famous for portraying world figures, government officials, and A-list celebrities.
