Fatima Krantz is a 23 years old artist with Kenyan roots but living in Sweden. She grew up in a Kenyan household and was surrounded by strong Kenyan women who have later come to inspire her art. Her art aims to show the immense beauty of black women from the African diaspora. She wants to show the truth and life of black African women – the dark history but also the bright future. Each piece comes with a poem explaining the history behind each piece and her art covers everything from ancient Africa to slavery and colonialism to today’s situation for black women.
