The Artist Behind Ebony Beauty – Kira

29 Apr

  

I came across some beautiful artwork recently and just had to reach out to the artist.  The artist is Shakira Rivers.  She’s an amazing artist and a naturalista at that!  I have posted two of my favorite prints, but please take some time to learn about Shakira Rivers and her art.   

The Artist

Shakira Rivers is known to friends and family as Kira.  This young artist was born and raised in Gainesville,Florida.  She’s 23 years old and has been creating art all her life.  She’s a self taught artist but is always learning new things from other artists. Kira gets ideas for her work from all around. Some of her recent work has been inspired by her natural hair journey and the natural hair styles she has seen. Kira has been natural for 1 year and locked for 7 months. This is evident in much of her work; for example: “Ebony Beauty”, The “Loc’d Beauty” series, and a t-shirt design of “Afro”.  

Her Work

Kira’s work is made with soft pastels,acrylic, oil paints,charcol, and digital mediums like photoshop. Since she enjoys experimenting it enables her to create all kinds of art. She likes to paint landscapes, fictional  and real portraits, abstracts, and t-shirt designs.  She loves creating art that can help people escape from the real world and just make people feel good.
