Laylah Ali talk at the new DIA this Sunday

Laylah Ali, Production Still, Art:21.

As part of Black History Month at the new DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts), on Sunday, February 24 at 2pm, Season 3 artist Laylah Ali will be speaking about her artwork.

Laylah Ali creates gouache-on-paper paintings that take many months to complete. She meticulously plots out in advance every aspect of her work, from subject matter to choice of color, achieving a high level of emotional tension in her paintings as a result of juxtaposing brightly colored scenes with dark, often violent subject matter.
