POETIK is fascinated by how people use design as a form of visual communication and explores the intersections of identity and Black culture. In her collage work, she displays ‘dreamy’ imaginings of the futurity of Black life decentering the white gaze. She places figures, known and unknown in earthly landscapes that express what is and expounds on what could be. Furthermore, her curiosity continues to shape her artistic language.
Open for hire + commissions.
