Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

Ms. Understood is a portrait of the iconic Nina Simone. Known as a talented musician, her genres included classical, blues, jazz and more. Though originally classically trained, aiming to become the first black classical pianist, Nina's music took a turn during the civil rights movement where she felt obliged to bring light to the importance of what was going on with her voice. The title Ms. Understood is in reference to the song "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" with which I aimed to match the strength of Nina herself. I find Nina a bold and beautiful inspiration which how I hope this piece is received.
