Sovina Vernon-White

Sovina Vernon-White’s work explores the representation of Black people in real spaces and in the prism of socialised perspectives.

She shares that when growing up she was never exposed to the fact that Black people made art. By some twisted irony, the artists that greatly influenced her were artists who were themselves influenced by African art such and Benin and Fang.

Sovina takes her artisitic African influences and makes them her own with the use of block colour and other abstract interpretations of texture, shape and values.
