She was referred to as Queen mother, highly regarded as the most feared general during her tenure. She was tactical and fierce, as well as uniting. Under her rule women mastered fighting, forging superior warriors of men and women. She was known to have excellent military commanding skills, which saw her become one of the strongest and fierce female military tacticians. This piece is to illustrate the strength of Mother Africa, the rich history of intelligent, highly intellectual black women, growth views of equality as the norm.

“As your leader, I encourage you from time to time, and always in a respectful manner, to question my logic. If you’re unconvinced that a particular plan of action I’ve decided is the wisest, tell me so, but allow me to convince you and I promise you right here and now, no subject will ever be taboo. Except, of course, the subject that was just under discussion. The price you pay for bringing up either my Chinese or American heritage as a negative is… I collect your fucking head. Just like this fucker here. Now, if any of you sons of bitches got anything else to say, now’s the fucking time!” – O-Ren Ishii, Kill Bill Vol.1 An ode to the baddest villain of all time. Leader of Tokyo’s Yakuza clan, Cottonmouth of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad. This is my take on O-Ren Ishii. Hats off to Mr. Tarantino for giving us the best fight scene in cinema history!

This image is part of a set of illustrations created for a rhyming children’s book I wrote about the alphabet, animals, and architecture. The poem accompanying the image is as follows:
Toronto is known for diversification With residents from practically every nation. And like how any great city should be seen, The Tiger explored it through its cuisine.
He started with dosas from Gerrard Street, Then Portuguese chicken, for a taste of some meat. Then Chinese dumplings, Italian rice balls, And a series of food trucks in front of City Hall.
The spaceship-like building with two tall curved towers Is the heart of municipal and civic power. A backdrop to Canada’s largest town square, The Tiger paused to rub his full belly there.

At a time when racism is out in the open, some try to conceal it as something else, even as tradition, this painting challenges us to confront it. Having grown up in Colombia, the worst conditions are experienced by people of African descent, whose regions politicians forget after elections. It fills my heart with disappointment after realizing that the entire system has been built to perpetuate this behavior, and that no party can fix this. Rather than victimizing others, my art seeks to empower them to express feelings and moods.
Love you all. Let's build the world we want.

Photostory Adé is an ode to the Adélakun lineage of Yoruban Royalty. The photos narrate the stories of Yoruba River deities and Orishas through the craftsmanship of crowns sculpted by Destinie. The work is an interpretation of the crowns of the Orisha Yemoja, Oshun, Oya, and Obatala. The women show an unwavering gaze of confidence in the images showcasing resiliency and mirroring the attributes of the Orishas. Adélakun's ancestry is rooted in this work, and she reclaims her ancestors by presenting Yoruban mythology. Destinie is inspired by the ancestral mothers and their folklores and she aims to preserve it by highlighting the names of and the stories of the Orishas. Her work aspires to bring awareness to the movement through Afro spirituality, traditions, and Afro-futuristic imagery.

Expressed through watercolour I capture myself and my two older sisters in a piece that brings us together though we are actually very far apart. I used specific colours which represent our individual spirits, while the huddled position and interlocking arms bonds us into one.
