Outside of physical events, Afropunk has been constant in the years of highlighting black artistic talent and beauty. Read below to see some Afropunk locd looks and about the artists themselves.

1. This photo was taken at Afropunk 2019 in Atlanta. The artist is Braylen Dion – a young photographer and filmmaker. To quote himself, “My purpose is to capture blackness in a more soft or calming way.”
2. Christan Cody, director and image maker, photographed this model featured on Afropunk’s instagram feed. “As an image maker, he pulls inspiration from his environment and cultural nuances and fuses those inspirations into visual explorations of Black beauty.”
3. Serving us a doe eyed look through with some white freckles is our next feature. Alexis’s long and curly locs really pull the whole look together.
