A glance over Kah Yangni’s art is an exploration of shape, color, and meaning; the illustrator and muralist is known for heartfelt masterpieces that tour themes of justice, queer life, and joy. Their clients have included big names like Vice and National Women’s Law Center, they have appeared on digital media platforms like Mashable, and today, Yangni’s piece Love is Present is available at Tiny Showcase, a Providence print house producing affordable, collectible art every Tuesday. Yangni graduated from Brown, mentored at New Urban Arts, and played music in both ERB and What Cheer bands before returning home to Philadelphia.
Only 100 limited edition archival prints will be made of Yangni’s design, originally paint and ink on paper, and buyers can opt for a custom maple frame. However, patrons aren’t just supporting a local business and independent artist with this purchase – $200 from the sale of Love is Present will be donated to Yangni’s chosen organization: National Bail Out, a Black-led and -centered collective of abolitionist organizers, lawyers, and activists combating mass incarceration. This is part of what sets Tiny Showcase apart: “It’s a nice way to grow your art collection and to support hard-working artists and the causes they care about,” says owner Julia Gualtieri.
