Digital Illustration on Watercolour Archival Paper 220gsm. A3 size
The illustration is part of the series “HER AS SUNSHINE” that celebrates black women in bright, bold and warm colours.
Naledi Modupi’s work is heavily inspired by the beauty of blackness and characteristics associated with black people. Through it she aims to inspire confidence and awaken hope in those who are able to find their reflections in her pieces, just as she sees her work as a reflection of the faces surrounding her. Her work focuses on the representation of Black people as the joyful, bold and beautiful people, whilst contributing to the shift from the ‘black struggle’ narrative.
