Some say art is a dying form of expression, on the African continent we like to believe an inadequate database system and yet growing platforms for artists is to blame for this oversight as art has never been more ripe to pluck from the tree of modernization than now in an era of young artists who aren’t afraid to shatter boundaries in their own unique form.

One of such young artists utilizing a very unique style is Tope Soares creative head at the Jessica Soares Art Brand, her canvas is leather, denim, plastic and many everyday fashion items, she encourages clients who have old fashion items looking for that spark to give it that edgy trendy feel again or just clients looking to customize new season fashion items.

We caught up with her to give us an insight about her wonderful brand.
