Mikéla Henry-Lowe


Two black people with Bantu Knots embracing

is a Jamaican artist based in London whose vibrant portraits celebrate the beauty of black women. The artist’s primary interest is the representation of black women in society. By breaking down her images into patterns and fragments of colour, Mikéla aims to break down the overarching negative image of black women that dominates the media. We love the array of shapes and colours that make up each portrait, capturing the colourful personality not just of the subject, but also of the artist herself."
