Through collages that burst with color and texture, self-taught visual artist and graphic designer Kaylan Michael (@lost_intheisland
) uses Instagram to explore themes of spirituality and feminity with an African touch.
“I love the fact that each person can see different things in one piece of art and relate to it,” says Kaylan, who lives in Montreal, Canada. “Being originally from Africa, I look up to African art and afro futuristic art styles. I love patterns, colors and designs that represent my roots.”
Kaylan’s work kicks off our new series, @Westbrook
