Exhibition – Believing is Seeing
Dark Sugars Cocoa House are hosting Carleen De Sözer’s first solo exhibition called “Believing is Seeing” which will showcase her airbrushed pieces on canvas, prints and the aerosol work in the back yard.
For nearly two decades Carleen De Sözer has been flexing her art skills across all platforms ranging from music, fashion, street and body art. Carleen has found a niche on the street art scene depicting highly appealing Afrocentric pieces of work, showcasing modern day life in London from a black female travellers perspective. She has done an impressive job creating her own lane, transforming our back yard into a space fully loaded with her own brand of street art.
