Artist Spotlight: Lewinale Havette

Lewinale Havette is a Liberian artist living and working in Atlanta. Her work tells the story of Mitochondrial Eve through ethereal self-portraits. She focuses on scientific and historical findings of Eve and with the goal of bringing Eve’s rich history into the current conversation about migration, alienation, exploitation and ultimately, acceptance. 

Havette sometimes uses conflict free diamonds in her work, a representation of a natural resource that has been the cause of conflict in many African countries.
