AFRO XXIII, watercolour/charcoal, 10" x 8", 2009

AFRO SERIES charcoal watercolour

This is number 23 in my present AFRO SERIES. I haven't included any other masculine face in my Afro series apart from AFRO X - where I featured myself, the way I looked when I was younger and used to have my mum treat me to an Afro blow and a 90 degrees part in my hair.

But I am including the second male face in this series that celebrates the beauty of black natural hair. I met this guy at Nandos last year when I went for a send-off meal for one of my friends, she was moving over to America. I approached him and he agreed to join this project.

The face of a black male today makes a bit of history too as Barack Obama becomes the First American Black President!
