DAWN OKORO

EP 10 | DAWN OKORO: Unapologetically Black, Woman, Her ‘Punk Noire’ & WTF is Self-Reflexivity

Raquel, Myself, and Vernique took a trip out to ATX (Austin), the home of SxSW, to speak with the incredible figurative painter…Nigerian American artist, Dawn Okoro. I did not know what to expect, but the artwork drew us in and so we road tripped it. I have to say, there was no disappointment. Dawn was open honest and awesome. I think it is safe to say, we all became even bigger fans of her work. Dawn speaks unapologetically about her love for blackness, black art and makes certain to uplift black women. This was special and fun. As usual, please listen enjoy and give us your feedback if you would. Peace.
