About MeMy Art

Jasaña Alleyne is an emerging artist focused on political and social issues finally rocking cities across the world. In her undergraduate studies, Alleyne noticed a consistently negative (or complete lack of) portrayal of the black body and black experience in her traditional art history and studio classes, as well as in popular culture. Increasingly troubled, Alleyne dedicated herself to changing what she calls the ‘lack of black,’ in the world around her. Her artworks are predominantly figurative, taking inspiration from historical portraits and even religious imagery.
