Colours of the brain - Mini Edition

Sold Out
Select Title

During the anti-racism movement of 2020, I felt moved to do more than just post a solitary black square on whatever social media outlet and then claim to have done something meaningful. My opinion of race has always been guided by MLK’s colour-blind mindset, where skin colour is of no relevance and content of character is what reigns supreme.

In the creative process, I found a quote by Nigerian poet, Michael Bassey Johnson, who said ‘I don’t fancy colours of the face, I’m always attracted to colours of the brain.’ It was this passage that connected to me and influenced the piece.

This is a one-colour screen print with the hair created with spray paints.

    Techniques used

    This is a unique, hand-finished screen print. The inherent nature of hand-pulled screen printing imparts a wonderful feel to each print, with slight variations from one to the next. These differences in outcome result in prints that are inherently unique. Additionally, this print has been hand-finished by James, providing each individual print with its own distinct finish. This makes each print in this small-batch, limited edition truly one of a kind.
