A group exhibition in celebration of Black History Month
Claire-Anne Abi Ola is a London based artist. Her artwork is inspired by African patterns, and old family photographs. She uses throw-away newspapers, magazines, and painted paper to create her imagery of family members. This is also to show that things people may see as worthless can still be useful. Ola began to be inspired by the magnificent African garments that her family wore, and this is what led to her experimentation with wax and dye. The organic patterns she creates are made with kitchen utensils and vegetables. The figures on the pieces are influenced by West-African art.
Natasha Lisa is a London based Jewellery designer and illustrator with a studio in Hackney. Operating under the name Afro Deco, Natasha channels the stylistic influences of Art Deco design and the vibrant patterns of Africa fabrics in her diverse range of artwork and acrylic jewellery.
I enjoy experimenting with different mediums though I love to paint & draw . My favourite thing is representing real people in varying real life themes & expressions .
