Dakarai Akil is a Los Angeles based collage artist and illustrator from Cleveland, OH.

Primarily working in collage and design, he has self-published three art books that catalog works created between the span of 2014 to 2021. He has participated in numerous group and solo exhibits over the span of 10 years and has had work with brands such as The New York Times, Nike, Forbes magazine and several more.

Dakarai's collages are small windows into the worlds of black surrealism & afrofuturism. Each piece tells it’s own story that is entirely up to the viewer to create based on their own observations. When creating these collages Dakarai focuses on color, shape and composition to tell a story to give the viewer a unique feeling.
