The Image

This T-shirt features an untitled original and empowering painting by Nigerian artist  Kosisochukwu Nnebe. 

Better known as Kosi, she is a first generation Nigerian-Canadian visual artist. Born in Nigeria, she moved to Canada where her multicultural upbringing manifested itself, in part, through the adoption of franglais and a long-lasting love for Nollywood movies.

She is also the founder and owner of Coloured Conversations - a multimedia project combining visual arts practice with critical social theory. Inspired by the work of countless Black feminist intellectuals and artists, ranging from bell hooks to Lorraine O'Grady.  The project's vision is to inspire others to challenge, reinterpret and redefine notions of race and gender within society. Coloured Conversations believes in the power of art to facilitate a process of self-determination and self-actualization.
