Dallas-Fort Worth artist lands collection of colorful canvases at Target stores
A local artist who creates colorful and vibrant art has a collection being sold at Target.
The artist is Roma Osowo of Dallas, and the 18-piece collection features a variety of abstract masterpieces ranging in designs and sizes, each unique but filled with Osowo's joyful and optimistic perspective. The collection is available in Target stores until Sunday, December 4, and online until Monday, September 4, 2023.
The collection came about when a home decor company saw the potential in her talent and made introductions to Target.
There are smaller canvases measuring 10" X 13" and 11" X 11", priced at $14.99, some of which have sold out; and larger canvases measuring 24" X 24", 24" X 30", and 36" X 36", priced from $50 to $85.
Osowo was born and raised in the British Virgin Islands, before migrating to the U.S. when she was 16. She spent more than a decade having a family and put art on the backburner, but returned to painting in earnest in 2017.
She favors rich, vibrant colors, calling herself a "color-loving abstract artist who creates vibrant, joy-filled art to elevate beautiful spaces."
She has also done cellphone cases, calendars, personal diaries, and other home goods, as well as a special clothing collection and resortwear for Trefle, a retailer based in the BVI.
Her work has been collected worldwide, and has been sold in a few retailers in the U.S. such as HomeGoods and Barnes & Noble. She's also has been featured in magazines such as Traditional Home and has worked with brands like Erin Condren, Pressed Juicery, Framebridge, Wexel Art, and Lemonade Pursuits.
“I want people to associate my name with the type of art and feeling they want to create in their homes,” she says. “As well as a name that reminds people that it’s never too late to pursue what you love.”
