Hi everyone, my name is Deborah Kasongo and I am the founder of “DeeKaayArt”! DKA/DeeKaayArt stands for Deborah Kasongo Art! I am Congolese, raised in Toronto Canada. My Art is a mix of abstract paintings and digital creations. I was always a creative child...drawing, colouring everything and everywhere! My love for art started to flourish in high school when I took my art classes and computer technology courses. I excelled in both courses and really found that I had a love for art and digital design. This led me to pursue my Bachelor’s Degree in Technology (Graphic Communications Management program) and minor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation from Ryerson University.

I am now an abstract painter and a digital artist! I paint unique paintings and design digital pieces that could fit perfectly in someone’s home! I feel like art allows us to connect and it’s interesting how differently people view art and the message behind an art piece! My art sends a message and that message can be different for every person! Art = Freedom!


In 2020, DeekaayArt was featured in an Art & Design magazine called "United Colours of Design". Where some of my bestselling art pieces were featured; "Mama Africa" and "African Gold" (the original painting).

In 2022, DeekaayArt was featured on a new CBC GEM Show called "Virgins The Series"! The series showcased a collection of DKA pieces, art hung on the walls of the bedrooms, living room and other spaces. It was a great experience to see my artwork on series and streaming service! 

The show itself is set in Toronto and follows the lives of four black woman navigating adulthood as millennial virgins. In the show you guys will see a series of different art displayed and some will be my art! The show made an effort to represent the black community by having black actors, actresses, crew members and artists. I am honoured to have my art featured in such a big way,
feeling thankful!
