I started this series of illustration of women, with three pieces for @rculturi a brand producing neckties, scarves, pocket squares, and decided to make it into a larger series, as it's a fascinating subject I loved working on.
This illustration is of an African woman playing the electric guitar, for the simple reason that you really do not see many black women guitarists in mainstream music. The first that may pop into mind is Sister Rosetta Tharpe, who is one of the precursors of rock and roll. Other awesome guitarists that come to mind are Lady Bo (sometimes called “Queen Mother of Guitar”) - Bo Diddley’s lead guitarist; Odetta, who influenced folk singers like Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Janis Joplin; and Elizabeth Cotten, who developed a unique left-handed style of playing the guitar, also known as “Cotten picking”.You can find this and the other two, available as pocket squares, here: https://www.rculturi.com/…/a…/art-collection-pocket-squares/ #illustration#woman#powerfulwoman#pocketsquare#rculturi#africanwoman#womanguitarist#sisterrosettatharpe#elizabethcotten#ladybo#electricguitar
It was a blast painting this mural for @sodotrack in Seattle, thank you so much @tamarbenzi and @gage_gage_gage for the invitation and flawless organization. It was great meeting all the cool artists who were part of the festival.
The mural is about Movement and Progress, and it was a bit of a challenge, because most of my pieces are super static, and also because of the crazy corrugated metal texture, but I managed to do it with a lot of help from @gage_gage_gage Thank you for the awesome photos @akoorisphoto and @wiseknave #sodotrack#seattle#mural#muralfestival#corrugatedmetal#acrylics#movement#progress#skateboarding#womanskateboarder#womanpower 💪 #saddo
I worked on a series of three murals together with my friends from MATKA, for "Eu și prietenii mei" ( "Me and my friends" ), a day center for underprivileged kids in Berceni, Bucharest. Each mural corresponds to a class room, in which the kids are taught Arts, Natural Sciences and Mathematical Sciences.
Many thanks to all the volunteers who put so much work and soul in this project, and to the guys from Benjamin Moore for offering the eco friendly paint.
