Out of love.
A love letter to the Black body.

from Belgian and Congolese descent,.
And currently based in Ghent (BE).
Bahati creates vibrant figurative paintings, heavily inspired by her African heritage.

being celebrated in a world without the white gaze.
Pulling from childhood memories and current events,
through softness and a warm demeanour.
