Asante comes from a family of artists (father Philip Freelon is an architect and mother Nnenna Freelon is a Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist), so it's perhaps no surprise that she's been making waves in the art world, too. Asante is best known for her assemblages of vibrantly colored tissue paper, through which she "explores the complexity and beauty of the world."
