Yanskiss x Taratantra


Human body and acrylic paint

Location: New York, NY, USA

Models: Liam Daniels, Sal Johnson, Deydey Bolt

Photographer: Ousman Diallo  

Through hybridizing of Indian Metaphysics, West African Dialectics, and American Urbanization, Ousman Diallo combined both natural and unnatural environments in order to explore the spiritual world and it’s place in our contemporary society.


Yana was able to synthesize Ousmans’ ideas with the use of her paint and Emanuel Swedenborg’s spiritual explanation of color that served as the foundation of highlighting the nature of the main characters and help remove the concept of the human flesh and skin color since such does not exist in the spiritual world.
