As a proud black woman, born in Nigeria, by default my work is a celebration of the black female form in its most holistically honest state. A necessity because we suffer significantly with poor mental health and African borne taboo shuns us. Therefore, my work is normalizing our extra need for engaging in self-care: normalizing black women taking a day off and enjoying themselves; normalizing black women wearing luxury items because it makes them feel good; normalizing black women’s natural hair or whatever different hairstyles they choose, and having people realize that depicting that on a canvas can be considered fine art. It does not have to be just an art niche ‘black art.’ My art is black because I am black. Not black because that is what I am choosing to create.
