Art: Dawn Okoro -An artist with a heart..
I love Dawn Okoro's work -there is a lovely fashioned vibe about them. The two (oil on acrylic) paintings above (top, 'frame' 2009 -24x36 and bottom, 'animadversion' 2008 -24x24) -are a fabulous celebration of the black female. Currently a Law student at University of Texas, -Dawn juggles her studies with her painting (many are commissioned portraits of celebrities like, Shaun Robinson of "Access Hollywood", Victoria's Secret model Nichole and Erykah Badu) and collaborations with various Charities. She also teamed up with Erykah Badu -to raise awareness for the singer's non-profit organization.
