RCHVL: Artist Talk with iicky Belmontes and Nneoma Ohale

As an extension of their Community Zine Archive: RCHVL, artist collective SUBlvl is hosting a series of artist talks to spotlight each artist and facilitate conversations about their work and contribution to their growing community zine archive. Spudnik Press is proud to welcome their collective for two Artist Talk sessions this month!

Join us on Tuesday, June 11th at 6pm for an insightful event programmed by two SUBlvl artists as a true reflection of their personal creative practices. Engaging fully in the conversations and activities is highly encouraged. Together with the SUBlvl community, we thank you for supporting local, independent artists of color as they delve deeper into the creative industry.

About the Organization:

SUBlvl is a collective that aims to amplify the voices of minority creatives and world thinkers through meaningful collaboration and creative direction. This is a safe space for all bodies where no story goes untold, no voices go unheard, and everyone gets their flowers.

This Artist Talk is free and open to the public, with a pay-what-you-can option available. All proceeds will support SUBlvl continue the production of their community zine archives that highlights emerging local artists.

About the Artists:

iicky Belmontes 

Born in Trinidad & raised in the Virgin Islands. Iicky has built a practice bringing together the teachings of his father and being multicultural. The artist creates his works from a variety of used and non-traditional materials, motivated by his father encouraging him to “use what you have” and “there are no mistakes”.

Nneoma Ohale

Nneoma Ohale is a 23 year old storyteller who works primarily in poetry and photography. Her current artistic obsessions are gender, her Nigerian identity and desire, all three of which are featured in her zine GA NKE OMA (Or, Go Well). This zine is a collection of poetry and photography that reflects the person and artist Nneoma is in this moment. The deeply personal nature of the zine not only aims to reveal things about the artist but invites the reader to examine themselves and the world around them.
