“my mission is to celebrate the richness and diversity of cultures within the african diaspora,” says artist adeyemi adegbesan (@yung.yemi ), who designed a face filter for afropunk (@afropunk ) this year.
“going all the way back to my childhood, my own personal journey of trying to find out more about my nigerian heritage has always been a source of inspiration for me and that just spread to an interest in other african cultures and histories, and wanting to know more about black culture around the world,” says adeyemi, who lives in canada. “when you look at my work, it’s kind of like a synthesis of all of the things that i’m learning and being inspired by.” #shareblackstories

Sinéad burke is on a mission to make the fashion world more inclusive. “i think often we underestimate how much we matter, both to the people around us and to the world,” says sinéad. “the world would not be the same without us. there would be a void, be it big or small. and i think often, we don't think we have an impact. but each of us really, truly does.”

“nature is my playground, and i have to deal with it,” says beach artist jehan-benjamin tarain (@jbenart ). “i work only at low tides when the fine, wet sand is very compact. the large-scale 30- to 100-meter pieces take between three to four hours to make, using simple tools like rakes and ropes, and remain for only a few hours before the wind or the sea come to erase them.”
