ABOUT

A London born and raised visual artist best known for her Monchi series, Nyanza uses vintage pop art conventions to explore modern women as 'contemporary muses' in her work. Based on her childhood surroundings, daydreams as well as pop culture, blended in with themes of femininity, self identity and freedom with heavy focus on expression, she aims for people to see themselves in each of her subjects in some way. Her work has been featured on The Huffington Post, Afropunk, Mic News and more.

Aside from her art, Nyanza enjoys baking, fawning over nostalgia from last decade, playing the same three chords on guitar and cry-laughing at Nollywood movies. 

She is available for work and can be contacted via email.
