Colours of the brain - Silver

Sold Out
Select Framing options

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.

One of my first pieces reimagined with every aspect originally hand-rendered, from the hearts, hair to the halftones.
