Lut Bahati Simoens




















Bahati is a self-taught female artist born in Munanira (Burundi, 1992)
From Belgian and Congolese descent and currently based in Ghent, Belgium.

She creates vibrant figurative paintings inspired by her African heritage.
Her work centers around bright colors in combination with black bodies being celebrated in a world without the white gaze.
Pulling from childhood memories and current events where her critical mind has been pushed to the limit.  

Her paintings have a softness and certain flow.
But the way these black bodies come across, filling space, is very loud.
