Black Girl Magic /blak · ɡərl· ˈmajik/ : a power that is filled with bliss, talent, and beauty that only a woman with melanin can possess.
Meet Anu Oro, she describes herself as a “Dream Artist” from Bronx, New York.
Anu’s artistry is both cultural and captivating. She has her own defining style with thick strokes and bold lettering. An outstanding artist she is indeed. It’s extremely important that we have various examples of how great we can be as black women. We can literally be anything imaginable… doctors, lawyers, business owners, musicians, or even an artist. Our greatness has no boundary. Having an example like Anu, who in my opinion has found something that she loves and decided to commit to is not only inspiring but also refreshing. The more I dig into the art world the more amazed I become. The pieces I feature here are only a glimpse of how amazing and powerful Anu’s art is. Visit her online gallery to see what else she has in store. Support this queen and purchase one of Anu’s dreams.
Did you catch it when it first dropped? D.R.A.M “1 Year” produced by Gabe Niles.
D.R.A.M, a rapper from Virginia who is the true creator of hit song “Cha Cha” that was later altered by Drake for “Hotline Bling”. Although that maybe the thing you remember D.R.A.M by he is more than “Cha Cha”. He however did go on record about the situation. On “1 Year”he vents, “CTRL +C copying me won’t work too many people knew about mines first. Cha Cha.” he continues ” Ain’t no beef but nigga that shxt hurt to the point where I feel covered in that dirt!” This record serves as a full reflection of his last year. D.R.A.M expresses his feelings from his satisfaction to his disappointments. The production is on “1 Year” is insane! Producer Gabe Niles completely catches D.R.A.M’s style; his production complements the rapper inevitably. The song is dope, the message serves as motivation to me personally. A clear message that all it takes is one year of consistency and you could be living your dreams. D.R.A.M is one of a kind… his style of rap has it’s own lane. Check out “1 Year”, catch the wave and become inspired to bust your ass for the lifestyle you want.
Being able to be an artist and lend yourself to a craft is truly a gift. Being able to realize that gift and use it to benefit the world is a blessing. Painting has always interested me… I just never took the time to see if it was something I could personally exceed at. However, my love for art has truly grown and my appreciation for painters and multimedia artist has grown as well. It always interests me what inspired the artist to create. I know that there is always a story behind each line and stroke. I am interested in that story.
Sir Taylor is his name, an upcoming multi media artist from Chicago who uses inspiration to guide his artistry.
KM: What inspired you to begin painting?
Sir Taylor: I grew up watching , a lot of cartoons. That then transpired to drawing as a kid on and off. I was introduced to painting at an young age at a after school program. It wasn’t until I was pretty much grown that I really got into painting. It’s really weird how it took off after that , it felt really natural . Even when I struggled with it , it just felt right. Then I got inspired to figure out what I wanted to say versus mimicking what I saw.

KM: What would you call your style of art?
Sir Taylor: My style of art, it varies. I consider myself an multi-media artist . Meaning that I paint with different mediums occasionally . Hyper realism could appear but I really don’t know. I just put what I see and add what I feel.
KM: What inspires you most in life?
Sir Taylor: Life itself . What can be more inspiring to know that you can’t end up where you started if you really tried. The ability to see, hear, feel or even love. I’m inspired by a lot it’s hard to pick what’s most inspiring. It could be a song, words from my peers, other creatives, my family etc. My little cousin once told me he looked up to me, that may have been the most inspiring thing I have ever heard . Who’d think being accountable for another person could be inspiring . It’s crazy.
KM: What is your goal for your art?
Sir Taylor: My goal is to let my art say something and inspire people. When I was younger it would’ve been great to know an artist that came from where I come from. I feel that my life would have been different if that was the case. Although I have no regrets, I believe you go through things a certain way for a reason . I want my art to speak volumes and be more of a testimony. Letting kids like my younger cousin, know it’s OK the chase your passion. Hold on to that thing you love because it will make life that much rewarding .
