Something shiny, something new, this time we curate a universe of captivating contemporary artworks from artists around Africa. Even cooler, we pair it with a playlist. Imagine we curated an art exhibition specially for your mind’s eye and you don’t have to leave your house for it. What’s better than guided imagination?
Plug in the playlist, hold my hand, and let’s explore some African pieces.
Titi – I never personally knew the guy. Might have met him a few times at best, but I was constantly inspired by him – music, the fashion, the hustle spirit, his presence in general – I like to think we all were.
If the South African industry was ever really in your sights, you would have heard of Riky Rick one way or another.
Following the very jolting news of his passing, about a month ago, I spent good time binging all things Riky; interviews, music videos, show clips, fashion looks and so much more. I knew I wanted to do something in his memory but I didn’t quite feel rightly placed to carry it alone the way I envisioned. So, I reached out to a few friends I knew LOVED and continue to be inspired by him to help me put this together.
So here’s to nostalgia for some, and discovery for others in a special compilation of our videos to watch review dubbed “Feed Your Eyes”.
