R•E•C•I•P•R•O•C•I•T•Y: Lost Narratives New Voices Art Gallery Showcase

Photos by Kayla Bush
Written By Evan L. Jackson

Reminiscing over conversations from yesteryear , even from the previous decade - YES Welcome to 2020- what stood out to me were the genius talks I had with Curator Anefertiti Bowman. The aesthetically in tune, astute, cultural dynamo who is also a dear friend. She told me about creating a space for female artists of color to thrive, a haven for their artwork and have it being appreciated. That very same idea came to fruition in the R•E•C•I•P•R•O•C•I•T•Y:  Lost Narratives New Voices Art Gallery Showcase opening on January 11th at Art Share LA. Reciprocity features 7 women artists of color who are coming out of Otis College of Art and Design. Co-curated by Anefertiti: these narratives display hidden and unseen narratives and stories from the depths of hope, pain, joy, lost , love and life. 

Walking into this display you can feel the consciousness in the air, in the middle is an amazing painting - a unity of Black and Brown with a dove in the middle to symbolize hope. Young Bold And Regal Photographer Kayla Bush enamored at the art snapping away and finally letting the art consume her almost in a hypnotic state. Black and Brown Art runs the world: it permeates aspect of our Culture.  

This piece and many other pieces among the showcase was done by Lanise Howard. Influenced by afrofuturism there is a liveliness to her artwork and a warmth. This is precisely why you you have these showcases: to introduce us to new artists that tell incredible stories in their art. Creating a type of lore and legend we can automatically bond with because we don’t see great art we feel it. 

 As my friend Dominique Xavier, Make Up Artist Extraordinaire.  entered the art gallery she was drawn to one piece over the others. A somewhat cryptic artwork that focuses in on the female body which was seemingly bruised. Her, Kayla and I were trying to figure out this puzzling and fascinating piece. What could it mean? The artist behind this magic was Dominique Victoria and the artwork’s name was “Worship At My Altar”. She explained to us she was previously a dominatrix and she found it ironic that these powerful white me would worship at her altar. And she felt empowered thorough her art. So profound!

My favorite piece was once again done by Lanise Howard. A painting of a Black Man with pixelations around his head on his hair. I felt it had to do with in the midst of being Black your own thoughts and mindset of Blackness  is suppressed and censored. Even at your most peaceful and welcoming state you are perceived as a threat. The subject of the piece said the pixelations are resembling a protection of Black Hair. But what is meant to be free becomes protected and a self imposed prison of Black Culture? I say we let it flourish. This was so brilliant and relatable. 

Anefertiti as the co-curator did amazing bringing together this art gallery and not only necessary for the community but the Art World at large. The status quo needs to be disrupted for us to see the unseen. Great art exists in all aspects and I’m excited that this is just the beginning. 

Reciprocity will run through January 25, 2020. Enjoy, take it and know when you give a platform to hidden stories and art they shine even brighter under an artistic lens.

Mogul Monday: Stylist Yvonne Mwazo of Styled By Yvonne

By Evan L. Jackson

When it comes to Fashion it is expression personified. Before you can even speak your style , your confidence and your energy all intertwine for a potent air about you that people either are to totally encapsulated by or utterly forgettable. Making a name for herself Stylist Yvonne Mwazo of Styled By Yvonne is so unforgettable just the mere mention of her inspires others to say “Have you introduced yourself to Yvonne, yet?” One interaction isn’t enough because each time is a warm conversation filled with positive sparks. That’s the feeling I got when I stepped into Yvonne’s opening Botique for Kendis Kloset.

With all of her friends , family and consumers in attendance Yvonne joyfully floated through the room with grateful nature and a permanent smile. As we present this week’s Mogul Monday know that being a BOSS starts with believing in yourself. In 2016 Yvonne states her journey as a Stylist. Originally from Kenya and growing up in Los Angeles . California you can see the many influences that help cultivate her style. Progressing her career she has such celebrities as Don Benjamin and TelliSwift. Look for more of her throughout the years.

BET Awards Edition: The Movement LA x Raw Nation Fashion Show

Written by Evan L. Jackson

The Movement LA always brings the heat when it comes to the runway! In collaboration with Raw Nation during the illustrious BET Awards Weekend, on June 23rd, the sun had set on the Grammy Museum rooftop in Los Angeles, California for The Movement LA Fashion Show to thrive and deliver.

Coming in early to set up there was a bouncy energy as the BET Awards always elicits a special atmosphere. Going about I saw all in one Fashion Mogul Kisha Waters, Creator of The Movement LA - Creator/Main Designer of K. Waters Fashion Design - looking focused. She was ready! She knew her Fashion Show would be the best as usual.And surely, it was! The eclectic nature of Fashion Coordinator Parris Harris provided a boost to the already weather worn Models. Was it just right for an outdoor Fashion Show? Absolutely! Preparing for the Fashion Show I came across two fresh and brilliant Models. Indii & Tialanni - whose curly hair,exuberant smiles and newly minted journeys reminded me just how original Kisha's Fashion Shows are. They welcome newcoming Models who do amazing on the Runway to Models who are always great once they step into the establishment. That mix always keeps The Movement LA Fashion Show one of the best in the industry.

As the evening commenced Editor In Chief of Luxe Kurves Magazine & Media Personality Brandy 'Kurvy' J. was holding down the Red Carpet, interviewing the Stars, and looked incredible in her red dress! For the second consecutive time, my Young Bold And Regal Correspondent Jae Jones had come to Kisha's Fashion Show and still looked amazed. The Grammy Musuem Rooftop was such a perfect location. Courtney ,The Social Media Reporter for Young Bold And Regal, served as the Best Dressed that night for sure. What a turn out, what a show already! The Fashion Show had begun and of course the standout was the K. Waters Fashion Design. As Prince's Classics came on the soundtrack, fit the them of the designs - an 80's retro look with a modern twist to make it look stylish and anew. My favorite was Le'Jour Botique. The aqua colors with the sleek designs looked effortless and free flowing. In the crowd you could see Hip Hop Artist Chingy talking to the Model Sabrin alwhile Artist Soulaire entertained us all. His adlibs and shout outs gave the show life! Capping the night Artist Amina Budafly serenaded the party goers. As we were all lulled by her beautiful voice, I think to myself, "Is The Movement LA, the most consistent and best Fashion Show in Los Angeles?" Of course it is! Come to the next one and when you get the chance, Thank Kisha.
