Aïcha Barry is an comic artist and illustrator based in Richmond, Virginia. She grew up in Côte d’Ivoire until age eleven, when she had no choice but to immigrate to Sénégal due to the civil war and in the end, the United States at age sixteen. Despite all the changes and uncertainty that moving across the globe came with, her passion for creating stories and images remained unchanged and flourished to a career in visual storytelling.
