Ayana is an interdisciplinary performance artist based in New York, hailing from Guyana. She is a pen hoarder, tea enthusiast and circle skirt aficionado. Her work is heavily influenced by her roots in reggae and dub poetry and inspired by the works of Dali & Kahlo. In her forthcoming chapbook “ Cassava Bread & Pepper-pot,” she explores the life of a queer immigrant, responds to the current state of human affairs & focuses on self-love and healing. You can find her ogling at your local flora, humming off beat on the J train or snapping off guard photos.
