This beautiful drawing by Jamaican born artist #atoseitu in the 1970s titled "We are the mothers and father's of our children," reminded me of traditional #somaliwomenstyle so beautiful and a poignant message that resonates with many of us.
Wanda Nanibush in conversation with artists Lisa Steele and Kim Tomczak, Kim Kozzi and Dai Skuse of FASTWÜRMS, Ato Seitu, Vera Frenkel and Duke Redbird. What an amazing group of such accomplished individuals!
For a number of years I have had the pleasure of assisting artist Ato Seitu choose Japanese papers to incorporate into his inspiring mixed media works. Currently there are two vinyl prints that he did in the 70's on display in the AGO's exhibition Toronto: Tributes+Tributaries, 1971-1989. Check it out. The works are amazing and Ato is a truly lovely and inspiring man. #ago#1970#canadianart#torontoart#atoseitu
