Amenze’s Black Art––using her voice through her hands

Amenze Osunde
By Faith Osumnde

Amenze Osunde is an artist and illustrator whose work strategically showcases the regal nature of Black people in their many different elements. The Nigerian American 20 year-old who was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York specializes in sculptures, paintings (oil as well as water colors) and embroidery, which happens to be her favorite. It all started in 2014 when she was admitted into Fashion Industries High School as an art student. She later transferred to Edward R. Murrow, where her artwork reached new levels.
