Black Brighton Market has been something I have been working on in my mind for a good few years now, It was inspired from a previous project of mine which, financially and planning wise, was a lot simpler. When I initially came up with the idea of BBM I kept it quiet for a while,Continue reading “Black Brighton Market; Where it began & Where it is now.”

Brixton Art Prize Shortlist Artist 2022

A few months ago, I was scrolling through Instagram, as per usual, and I kept coming across an advertisement for an exhibition prize. The page seemed authentic, didn’t seem too expensive and it looked to have a lot of coverage.

Create & Drink – Tie Dye

It was a bit of a head-scratcher thinking of what to do for the second Create & Drink 2022. As much as materials like oil paints, acrylics, watercolours, colour pens and pencil are all very different in their result, I wanted each event to be so different from the last, that I wasn’t constantly buyingContinue reading “Create & Drink – Tie Dye”

Coffee Art Project

Always experimenting with different mediums and techniques to bring my imagination to reality, I decided I wanted to start a new portrait project painting celebrities of colour on big canvases. Using bold colours I switched between acrylic paint and paint pens (posca pens) to create eye-catching backgrounds, fine detailed clothes and metallic jewellery on popularContinue reading “Coffee Art Project”

Black Joy Photography

I’ve done quite a few photoshoots over the past few years and taking my camera out to BLM protests. With all of the BLM last year and overload of information about inequality, I found myself really seeing a very pinhole view of Black Lives. Even the new categories on t.v streaming sites, I felt IContinue reading “Black Joy Photography”
