ABOUT NUBIART

Nubiart (Nubian Art) is a term I use to describe my illustrations. My work aims to not only celebrate black women, but shed light on the issues that they often face. My style is heavily influenced by African textiles- using bold colours and clashing patterns to tell a story. Nubiart offers a new flavour of art: A hint of tradition with a vibrant modern twist. I hope you enjoy!

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.
