Wais Ali, East Africa Fine Art
CityStream: Wais Ali, East Africa Fine Art

As you walk through Pike Place Market, it’s hard to miss the vibrant colors coming from East Africa Fine Art where the clothing and canvasses have a wildlife theme. All designs are inspired by images seen firsthand by owner and artist Wais Ali. As an immigrant from the East African country of Djibouti, Ali regularly saw giraffes, lions, and even goats foraging high up in trees! Wais Ali is one of 14 Black business owners at Pike Place Market. His story is one of several being featured as part of Black History Month.
