AFROCENTRIC ART ARE YOU READY?

THE STORY OF OYA

I PAINT, I CREATE AND I USE MY BRUSH TO EXPLORE THE CONCEPTS OF GENDER, IDENTITY AND THE DIASPORA.

My name is Karen Alleyne, and I am a self-taught, emerging artist from North West London. If you were to ask me to define my style, I would say that I am an artist who works with acrylics. I like to leave definitions up to the spectator.

MY WORK

click through to view some of my latest paintings and the stories behind them.

My work is diverse and includes a range of pieces from abstract Afrocentrism to moderately erotic paintings that celebrate the beauty of the female form. It also includes politically charged depictions and works inspired by nature. The range reflects my personality, a melange of stuff!

I love to paint! You can follow my work from idea creation to the finished product via my Instagram feeds @oyaarts.
