For the third installment Thris Tian invites Chiizii, an emerging Nigerian artist currently living and exploring her art in London. She’s live in the studio creating live art from recycled material, glue and acrylic paint whilst chatting to Thris Tian about the process, to reflect on the traditional and contemporary techniques used in black art.

Charlie Dark also joins the session, a DJ, Producer and poet most known for being behind the successful group Attica Blues. The trip hop trio of the 90s were one of the first to sign to Mo Wax in its early days. Charlie Dark shares his love of black music with a mix created live with Chiizii creating live art in response.
