What's New Shop Black Art

Oya Art specializes in Black Art from a British, African American, and Caribbean perspective. I was inspired by my time living in London, Minneapolis, and Barbados.

I offer a range of creative options, including original paintings, prints, gifts cards, and much more.

We also know how difficult the last couple of years have been, so we offer payment plans on most products to suit your budget.

Introducing The Less Said Series

My new series enables you to enjoy the art in more ways than on the wall!  Black art does not need tp be confined to walls, shop bags, clocks, mugs and puzzles!

Find Your Special Painting

The appreciation of Black art is more than a trend, it’s a way of life, it offers insight into the culture, history, politics, and human rights of the African diaspora.

View below to explore the plethora of works that make up the Oya Art collection. 

Identity Series

A large portion of my work explores the concept of Identity from a gendered and diasporic perspective. 

Much of my work explores themes related to my upbringing and I strongly celebrate my Caribbean roots through my paint brush.

Abstract Afrocentrism

A dictionary definition of Abstract art is “art that does not attempt to represent external reality but aims to achieve the desired result using shapes, forms, colors, and textures.

In an effort to find a better way to describe my work, I have coined the term “Abstract Afrocentrism.” Click through to read more and see the collection.

Art-I-Facts Series

Out of many people come one.

This collection explores the diaspora through portraiture. A series of paintings that look at the similarities that bind us all together as children of the motherland. Each piece tells the cultural story of the subject through a Pan-African lens,  whilst celebrating difference. It asks the spectator to stop and look at the common threads that run throughout all melanated people of the world.
