– I’m unapologetic-ally African
This piece is about the black man and finding beauty within ourselves. As black people in today’s social media telling us what is beautiful and what is not, we are left to find our own beauty. In this piece, the model is almost naked and covered with white paint using African patterns. This is to symbolize that our beauty is not just physical but from the African within us.
