Artist Bio:

Ndeyfatou Ceesay is an African artist from The Gambia. Inspired by mysticism, spirituality, and human connection; expressing herself through art. She adores the freedom of being able to create. A common theme that runs through much of her work is the power of women, and the efforts in society to control this power. In her West African culture, gender discourse is extremely patriarchal. Women are supposed to be pretty, meek and compliant. She is none of those things. Her art is a way to express her most authentic self and she hopes it speaks to you too.
