Esther Lutandila aka @4everesther’s love for art was born at a young age. She started drawing because her brother was always drawing and she wanted to copy everything he did. Over time she perfected her craft and began doing digital art in 2015. Esther’s art often revolves around Black women because when she started doing digital art, there weren’t many beautiful digital illustrations of Black women.

3) Yung Yemi

Like his website’s about section reads “Adeyemi Adegbesan is a Toronto based photographic artist whose practice aims to examine the intersectionality of black identity. Reflecting on blackness through pre-colonial – colonial – present day and future timelines, across regions, religions, varying levels of income, and political lines; Adegbesan interrogates the dichotomy of the richness of black experiences with the imposed societal homogeneity of ‘Blackness’. Through his work Adegbesan pulls from these varying elements to create Afro-futuristic portraits that embody history, future, and culture all in one.”
