Rizpah Brinkman is an Afrocentric artist in paint and spoken word hailing from the Cotswolds. Her work is inspired by the ongoing resilient joy among the African Disapora in the face of hate and trauma worldwide. Positivity and happiness is a choice that doesn’t negate the validity of pain through experience, the self-generation of joy influences the longevity of the fight to thrive. Concepts and perspectives are integral in all of her creativity. Challenging the logic of hate and contributing to Black representation is fundamental in her poetry and art.
