Shema Love

A multi-passionate artist and lifestyle content creator, Shema is the founder of Shema Love Designs, a Black owned creative studio based in Brooklyn, NY that specializes in culture centric visual art.

Shema’s unique faceless art has the ability to convey eccentric stories and real emotions through mostly portrait art. Her paintings and digital artwork uniquely lacks any facial defining features because she wants people to see themselves and resonate personally with her art.

A self proclaimed nomad, when she’s not designing, she’s traveling the world as a Registered Nurse and travel enthusiast.

Shema’s design work and likeness has been featured by Netflix, HBO, Pyer Moss, PopSugar, Freeform on ABC, VH1, Alpha Industries, Footlocker, Jordan Brand Women's, and most recently Shema was the face and featured artist of the global campaign for Nike Air Max Day 2021.

 

 

THE ART - HEALING

 

The artwork speaks to self love and the importance of healing from within, centering on the connection that before we can love each other, we must remember to love ourselves. The billboard is a loud display of this message and is representative of remembering to reach out when you need help.

 

"With this piece, my hope is to raise awareness in self healing, but also utilize this imagery to assure people that they are not alone in their healing process." — Shema Love
