A young open-minded Visual artist who loves to come up with creative concepts that marry beauty and functionality through art that is intelligent, clean, and minimalistic in its visual aesthetic. I want to capture all the simple African based stories that tend to be forgotten by most. Since it’s the small things that we do define us as Africans, I make these illustrations in a minimal way to remind us of who we are.
Toni'Tria Ballard is a twenty-three-year-old multimedia graduate from IUPUI. Although her most preferred medium is graphite because of its versatility, she holds all mediums close to her heart. Her subject matter ranges from creepy horror to black activism.
Her art is internally driven, like a gateway to the soul. Jenn's creativity is inspired by her own passions and emotions. She loves big, natural Afrocentric hair and bright engaging colors, so most of her artwork displays black women with kinky curly hair accompanied by a vibrant, colorful background. Jenn has also been inspired by the "Black Girl Magic" movement by creating phenomenal paintings that illustrate the universal awesomeness of black women in a positive light by celebrating our beauty, power, dopeness, and resilience.
