T o g e t h e r . W o m e n . C a n [There is no coïncidence] Before all I would like to thank @adamaparis for this opportunity We first met in January in Paris. And as there is [ no coïncidence ] at this time I was looking for a place and you where thinking about building this wonderful concept store @saargale. The inauguration wasnt only à way for me to discover the place but it was officially the countdown of the vernissage. Few months later, here I am. What a honor and challenge for me to be the first project To be hosted in a such a place! I couldnt think of a better place for the vernissage. So yes,I am convinced when women work and help each other, we accomplish amazing things Merci @lucy for your support on the organisation #grateful #panafriacanstories x #saargale #adamaparis #womenempowerment #africanqueen #vernissage #paris #connexion #senegal #ivorycoast #africanart #panafricandream #thegreatvillage #dare #blessed

🎵"A FATHER OF THE FATHERLESS"🎵 As He walked through the Armenian Quarter of Jerusalem, Selassie Observed a Marching Band of 40 Armenian youngsters. He learned they were Orphans of the Armenian Genocide by the Turks. He also learned of the financial strains that they faced. Selassie offered to Adopt them all. The 40 Armenian LIDJOCH (children) were adopted and given positions in the Ethiopian Imperial Orchestra in 1924. In 1930 they helped to create Ethiopias First National Anthem.

[You are strong | You are brave] • • This goes to anyone who feels or has ever felt like they're drowning, The ones struggling to keep their head above the water. • It is for those who've been inside the water so long they've grown gills, Those who are so tired of holding their breath they wish they could let go. • This is for the survivors who managed to swim ashore, Those who swam despite their being no prospect of success. • However, it is also for the ones who did not make it out, Those who lost hope on ever breathing again, The ones whose pain was so great they released their lungs. • Finally, this goes to those helplessly or unknowingly watching their loved ones sink, Those who wish to help but do not know how. • It is for those who offer a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, But also for the ones wishing they had helped before it was too late. • To you all, You are strong. You are brave. • Yours sincerely • • • #digital #digitalart #digitalartist #digitalcollage #blackwoman #africa #african #africanart #africanartist #blackart #blackartist #toronto #torontoartist #afriart #supportblackart #blackartmovement #blackartistspace #blackartistmatter #youngblackartists #africanartcollector #blackart365

“I am confident” _______________________________________ . Part 1 of the collective “I am a woman”. . . . Very honored to have a solo before the age of 25. It’s been on my To-Do-List ever since I first participated in an exhibition (2008). My pride of this exhibition is the collective “I am a woman”. The four paintings symbolize my transition from adolescent to adult and the things I’ve had to reassure myself to cope with the struggles I’ve had to face along the way. The first of the four is I am confident. Those of you who knew me as a child know how shy I was and I’ve had to learn the hard way that being shy can mean you miss out on many great conversations and opportunities. So now despite being an introvert, I remind myself I am a woman, therefore, I am confident. _______________________________________ . . . How do you get through uncomfortable situations? . . . . . #introvertstruggles #confidence #introvert #paintings #bauhinia #bauhiniaart #purple #iamawoman #women #blackwomenart #floralart #portraitsandflowers #zambianart #zambianartist #zambian #zambianexhibition #artinzambia #faces #charcoalportraits #acryliconcanvas #soloexhibition #soloexhibition2019 #africanartist #africanartcollector #africanart #africanwomen
