A report from The Voice Online.
DIGITAL ARTIST Elaine Daley will be exhibiting her art collection throughout South London in celebration of Black History Month.
Daley’s art depicts strong African/Caribbean women using explosive colours with hints of Afropunk fused with an Andy Warhol, pop art feel. Her exciting work blends an eccentric, dynamic style that seeks to spark the imagination and draw you in.
Inspired by almost 20 years working as a solicitor assisting the homeless, refugees and victims of domestic violence, she uses her art to inspire confidence, self-worth and a drive towards overcoming challenges. Her bold and quirky work employs powerful quotes fuelled from her unique experience working with vulnerable people and is used to encourage and motivate the viewer to achieve their goals and aspirations.
The exhibitions will be held at Victoria Library, Tate South Lambeth Library, Tate Streatham Library, and Peckham Library. Daley’s believes her art has an important part to play in promoting health and wellbeing, particularly in regards to mental health. She will be holding a presentation at Peckham Library on 20 October at 6.30pm – 7.30pm (free admission) on her art journey and its many wellbeing qualities
Visitors to the exhibition will be energised by Striking thought provoking pieces which will also feature some stylish art products (mugs, coasters, notebooks and greeting cards). Semi black and white prints will also be exhibited created to promote a classical yet contemporary feel.
The London artist hopes that using art to celebrate Black History Month will be a compelling way of unifying all people and help cement an important part of our collective consciousness. So take a peek at Daley’s first art exhibition and experience an elevating and stimulating journey.
