Dready is a character and a style of art created by Jamaican born, Caymanian (west Indian) artist Shane Aquart. Dready art has evolved from just images of that character, to a style of art embodying the bold colours, humour, and style of the Caribbean.

Shane Aquart ‘Dready’ discussed his inspiration behind the ‘Gloucestershire Cricket in the sea’ artwork, he said: “In Cayman, we have this spot called ‘Rum Point’, it has a beach bar and the water off of it is really shallow and people tend to go out there on a weekend to raft up and get some food and drink. 

The mini sand bar, at the centre of this art, was a thing for all of us when I first moved back to Cayman. There used to be a volleyball net in the water, and this was part of the inspiration that would help me bring some good cricket memories to life.

As I drew it, as I planned it, the beach began to disappear more and more from the drawing and the idea of playing in the sea, at mini sand bar, took over.” 

Speaking about the Dready artwork, Chief Executive Will Brown said: “We are delighted to be able to offer Gloucestershire supporters the opportunity to win such a terrific prize. We would like to thank Dready and the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism for such a great competition for our members’ and supporters to get involved in.

There have been many stand out moments from the 2020 season, so good luck picking your favourite moment Gloucestershire fans.”
