PORTRAITURE: A 2018 Iké Udé portrait of Burkindy.
Burkindy is a Brooklyn, New York based artist/jewelry designer who hails from Burkina Faso, West Africa and from which he takes his name. Burkina Faso roughly translates to “Land of the Upright People”. Similarly, in the dialect of the Mossi people, burkindy translates into integrity, something Burkindy strives for in all his work. .
He believes each jewelry piece, no matter the medium, should maintain strength of quality and character.
Burkindy draws inspiration from the flaws in a piece of work, and finds a way to incorporate the perceived flaw in one piece into another. He is constantly revisiting his culture and has worked on a variety of pieces reflecting this cultural heritage. He frequently references the beauty of African masks, sacred animals and objects. .
He is fascinated by intricacies of design and details—which he translates into the perfect custom piece.
Albeit, Burkindy now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, he is continuing work with his parents to help educate and enable his country's under-privileged and emerging talents. He also holds a dream to one day open a museum in Burkina Faso, drawing attention to all the traditions that have inspired his own work. He also serves as a creative consultant for Marin Hopper, daughter of the late actor, Dennis Hopper. @burkindy . ..........................................................................
