Afro-Inspired Art, From France With Love

One of my favorite things to do online, is search for afro-inspired art. Many images are cliche. And every now and then, you find something genius. IMO, this is the latter.

I stumbled across the button-art of Anouchka Potdevin via Apartment Therapy and HAD to look her up and share with my bellas.

Anouchka Potdevin is a French artist and from what I gather by translating her official site, she works in recycled materials and was inspired to create her afro pieces by the very Louis Vuitton models I questioned last year. Who knew?

Her work is available on Etsy (LOVE Etsy SO MUCH!)! Click here to check out Inspiration Vuitton.

And click here to check out her celebrity portraits, done in ink, plastic buttons, glass, and fabric. (all info from here). Her Diana Ross piece costs $115. Absolutely loving the work of Anouchka Potdevin. You’d better believe I’m counting my pennies!

  6. Hey… I’m having a bit of problem with the way your site is displaying. For some reason the text block overlaps the edge. I don’t know if it’s just me or are others reporting the same thing? Just wanted to let you know in case you’ve been changing things recently. Thanks! Bud Bambeck
