At Hekima's Studio I, Kaliah Hekima, am creating colorful, unapologetic artwork and fantasy narratives.
I am a visual story-teller and my work reflects the many facets of myself and what it means to navigate this space that is Black and woman and aware. I work with various mediums, including acrylic and oil paint, graphite, pastels, charcoal, and sometimes photo. My styles range from realistic to loose and expressive. I enjoy depicting the unapologetic, loud, multi-faceted Blackness and woman-ness that has shaped my idea of success and paradise.
My work does not seek permission or say “excuse me”, but rather to claim its place amongst what is considered truth.
