The first artist I have ever worked with is Jack Savage, a multi award winning fine art photographer from London. Jack has designed the cover of my previous book and he couldn’t have done a better job! Yesterday, he’s told me some great news! Jack’s work is gonna be represented by a gallery in Berlin! I just wanted to make use of this opportunity to publicly congratulate him! (and share some art of course!)
Don’t hesitate to leave a comment below to congratulate Jack 🙂
This is the link to his website. This is the link to his instagram. This is the link to our book on amazon. (available worldwide)
The poetry below is the first poem I wrote for my solo publication. I hope you like it!
Human Be Kind Now that we are confronted with this worldwide, tangible devastation Out in the open with our inequality living in total isolation, separated from our heart’s desires It makes me long back to When we all lived our lives the same Warming up to community campfires
Now that freedom itself is under attack, we’re confronted with what seems to be at a lack With what seems to be a faulty intention Can you feel it? The imperial tension If we want to save our civilisation We have to save the next generation From this immeasurable disrespect Towards many mothers, brothers and daughters.
Lives are at stake because of numbers Children are being disregarded Because they are a girl Because they are of color Because they were born In the “wrong” neighbourhood What happened to sharing Our collective success and growth? As humankind
We are entering the 8th month and I am still so proud and surprised to see what we have accomplished these first months! Thank you so much!
Now that we have a steady base I would like to focus on quality. This is why I will be relaunching Art In Coexistence, while also getting some professional help to make sure everything looks good. After this, I will apply for funding with hopes I’ll have more financial aids to promote your works and build our projects.
What will change? – The website will be rebuilt (this means the website will be out of order for a couple of days) – There will be a steady set of segments so you know what content to expect. – There will be a schedule, this way you know what days I am posting. – I will be releasing more information about our book. – I will be releasing more information about our magazine!

I am very proud and a little nervous to show you our first spoken word video project. I really hope you like it because I absolutely loved making it! This is a pilot to see if this concept is working. I am very aware of the fact that I need a lot of practise.
This is just one of many families migration stories. I hold a deep respect for the courageous people who manage to leave everything they know and start their lives all over again somewhere far away. Sadly, it is often precisely these people who are treated the worst. #HumanBeKind
This poem was originally a quick sketch, which I wrote during a recent visit to my grandmother.Let me know what you think of this project. Let me know if you’d like to see more of these videos Oh and by the way, would you be interested in a spoken word album of Spotify? Please let me know in the comment section below.
