FEATURE: Digital artist and activist Iman Geddy preaches #BlackGirlMagic with engaging, beautifully honoring illustrations

August 4, 2016

In the ever-growing climate of cultural pride and identity, it becomes increasingly necessary for artists to grab a cause, create a piece, and use their gifts as a platform for influence and change. Somalian-born digital artist Iman Geddy is grabbing the bull by the horns with her rich, beautifully honoring illustrations; pushing the essence of #BlackGirlMagic to its full potential. Her use of bright colors and contextual reference take the extra step in illuminating the beauty of brown and black skin, and set a clear example of how women of color should be represented within the media, and everywhere. Recently joining the SPARK┬áteam for reproductive justice, all of Geddy’s work is graced with empowerment and purpose- leaving a potent opportunity for artistic expression and acceptance. A true example of prideful art, check out Iman Geddy below.
