Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

Fro Girl is a portrait of the iconic Angela Davis. The piece title represents Angela as a hero with her Afro representing the S on her chest. It is also a play on words relating to the phrase "You go girl!" to express encouragement and approval of Angela's work such as her involvement in the civil rights movement. Someone who is looked up to and respected for her words and actions, strong presence and image. She knows her self and her vision.

The edges of this portrait are painted black alike the background. It has been finished with a matte varnish to compliment my style. I believe this piece looks best in dim lighting to assist the shadow effect.
