ABOUT NUBIART

Nubiart (Nubian Art) is a term I use to describe my illustrations. My work is a celebration of black culture and is heavily influenced by African textiles. I believe that art is so powerful and has the ability to evoke emotion, motivate and inspire the viewer. By using a combination of abstract shapes and bold colours, I aim to inspire people to live a vibrant and expressive life. Each illustration has been designed to not only transform your space, but to inject colour and happiness into your life and home. 

ABOUT THE FOUNDER
JAEL UMERAH-MAKELEMI

I began illustrating as I needed a creative outlet-

a way for me to express the way I think and feel. Coming from a Nigerian background and living in South London, I've grown up around so many other black individuals. I've always been fascinated by the multitude of diverse and bold personalities, who aren't afraid to express who they are through colour and fashion. This influenced me to create illustrations that are unapologetically vibrant and varied in style.
