</p> <h3>Antonia Perdu</h3> <p>
The Black Lotus of Baltimore, Antonia Perdu is a woman who lives in music and expresses it through poetry, storytelling, photography, and collage art. Her debut poetry memoir, ‘The Finder of Lost Things While Lost: Antonia Perdu,’ weaves through some upbringing of being a Baltimore Native and her journey of self exploration. Her photos capture Baltimore in silent poetry on which her upcoming book Old Bay Poetry will reveal. Her collage art touches on Afro-futurism and Black Culture, inspired by Octavia Butler, Pierre Bennu, Patrick Dougher, and Vanessa German.
