Welcome to Sanyu’s World this is the official website for child painter Sanyu Kalyesubula. The ten-year-old child actress, kid entrepreneur, and award-winning artist is based in Los Angeles, California.
Kalyesubula is a self-taught artist and has been painting since she was a toddler. It wasn’t until COVID-19 that she sold my first piece at a pop-up event in 2020.
Kalyesubula has won several awards and contests for her artwork including ones from the Los Angeles County Parks and Recreations, Los Angeles County Library, The Lancaster Museum of Art and History MOAH, Generations: Juried Art Exhibit, and more. She has been featured in the 2021 Kaleidoscope Art Festival where she was challenged with only selling her artwork and succeeded in making over $1100 at the one-day art event. She made the most out of all vendors in sales that day. She also participated in the 2022 festival. The artist was the youngest to participate in A Spectacular Black Girl Art Show Los Angeles held in January (2022).
In November 2021 the then-nine-year-old artist dropped her first collection Ice Cream Girl. Ice Cream Girl is a line of products with Sanyu’s digital artwork of a Black girl enjoying ice cream.
Sanyu’s mission is to create art with a Black girl magic twist that brings happiness to others and inspires them to create.
