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 team 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.
