Makala Aayana is a Caribbean-American, mixed-media artist from Atlanta, Georgia, now rooted in Durham, North Carolina. Her creative journey centers on promoting well-being and sustainability through art, fostering connections, exploring identities, and sparking conversations. Her work celebrates curiosity and contemplation, it is a reflection of how and what she sees around her. With the pieces in this show, she hopes that viewers are called to question and explore their life experiences and their stories, just as she has when creating each piece.
Makala is also a host and curator for A Concept: You (ACY), a podcast and community that focuses on encouraging people to be the best version of themselves. Through ACY, Makala highlights holistic wellness, uniting generations through shared wisdom and experiences, and encouraging an understanding of who you are and how you want to show up in the world.
