I recently travelled to France and visited Musée d’art moderne et d’art in Nice.
I was very inspired by the pop art section and thought how do I allow this style of art to influence my own creations as a visual artist.

I really enjoyed creating this, I want to experiment more with creating fun and vibrant pieces of black women influenced by the art that influences me, so I can grow more into my own style. I’d also like to recreate this using my own photography for a more authentic image, though it was really nice looking into Pat Evans and learning about her.
