The Daisha Board Gallery of Dallas
Daisha Board believes the most important part of the artist experience is the GAZE and what that feels like to be SEEN.
DAISHA BOARD GALLERY is a Contemporary Art Gallery representing BIPOC ARTISTS, LGBTQ+ and Artists with Disabilities locally and abroad in various mediums that include mixed media, sculpture, photography, installations, performance art and digital media.
Located in the evolving West Dallas area, near the Tin District, Trinity Groves and the Belmont Hotel. Daisha Board Gallery, focuses on optimum visibility, inclusion and acquisitions for marginalized artists.
Daisha Board has curated, juried and collaborated on exhibitions and projects in both traditional and non-traditional art spaces throughout Dallas.
This collection focuses on themes of racial animus, economic inequality, sexual pleasure, politics, cultural misconceptions, and religion. Anene says this body of work is aimed at “enabling the viewer to experience the awakening of the subconscious and to let loose of one’s inner self.”
‘Second Self: The Duality of Being’
Ifeanyi hopes people who view his art see it deeper than the canvas and just as complex, multilayered, and nuanced as human beings are, “I endeavor to
transform my works from the early stages (two dimensions and into the realm of three dimensions I use form and values to both tell my story and transform a
social norm into contemplation. My works are three-dimensional in nature; I often use base art materials, such as brushes and oil, to define space and form.
In these works. I use structural detail and values to tell a story.”
Anene believes holding the brush for public consumption bears a responsibility, “I hold on to Lena Waithe’s words when I paint, ‘I’m writing my story so that others might see fragments of themselves.’”
