Vanessa Bonaparte discovered design early, after her mother caught her melting crayons on the radiators to add color. She creates works, inspired by Harlem; with the esthetic obsession she’s always had. Each piece evokes the humor of a time gone past. My work is a tribute to Harlem and its impression on me. Harlem made me the artist I am today.
