June 18, 2015

Explore the work of Canadian illustrator and painter Kendal Blake. Blake, whose work is primarily focused on black subjects, tells us: “Through my work I try to capture beautiful moments. Lately my work my work has steered in the direction of only black subjects. I feel that it’s because my work is becoming more and more personal it’s starting to become a reflection of my beliefs.” She adds: “I find a lot of inspiration for my art work from images of black women and men I come across online and also largely through the music I listen to.” Check out her paintings below.
