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, artist  originally from North West London. I specialise in black art from and African American, British and Caribbean perspective as a result of the time I spend in London, Minneapolis and Barbados.
