Through the lens of Diane Kissmile.
Diane Kissmile is a young cineast living in Montreal, Canada. Through her lens I actually discovered few interesting artists. When i asked her about why this artist Ma’liciouz that you are about to discover that’s what she had to say!
I recently moved to Montreal , and it’s a multi-ethnic city, there is small room for people from visible minority. I also found that in Montreal, one is in quest of identity to assert oneself not only as as Black person in Montreal, but as a woman. When I met Ma’liciouz , I found that through her art she expressed what I had found. A black woman from Montreal proud of her roots, who assert herself as an artist, who asserts the femininity of her characters, which values black woman, proud and sensitive, showing black beauty through features, history, and modernity.”
Ma’liciouz is a young visual artist based in Montreal from Haitian descent. She does Afro urban art.She noticed very young that there was a lack of models she could relate or identify to. So, she decided to draw what matches her not only physically, but spiritually. She focuses on love, strength, and positivity. I am not going to spoil Diane’s beautiful documentary! Enjoy!
