Ep 46: Making Black Art Valuable and Accessible
I once read that art is important because it is the vehicle through which we see the world differently…helping alter perspectives. As an avid appreciator of art, I had to have Alice Gbelia on to the show after stumbling on her website on Saturday afternoon. Alice Gbelia of Ayok’a Deco is Ivorian-Parisian woman who is committed to ensuring that we see black art in a different light by making it valuable and accessible to all.
In this episode, we talk about growing up in a very segregated France. How moving to London, provided a new perspective on a humanness and blackness and the birth Ayok’a Deco the online destination for black art.
