Born and raised on the island of Curaçao, Kevin Osepa is a Netherlands-based visual artist who works with photography and film. Exploring themes like family, decoloniality, and afro spirituality, much of Kevin’s work revolves around his Afro-Caribbean identity and finding his place in a post-colonial world. The images we featured are laced with a sense of nostalgia, as Kevin reconciles his longing for Curaçao by investigating the relics and rituals that formed his childhood. His work has been exhibited throughout the Netherlands, and in 2020 his short film “Watamula” was nominated for best short film at the Netherlands Film Festival.
“I know what it feels like to be stuck in between these two separate worlds, not to feel at home in either. So in my work I am creating a sense of home, or my idea of home.”
