Description

This painting is of Shingai Shoniwa. This woman is originally from Zimbabwe and is known for her musical career in a band called The Noisettes. Her music played on repeat in my studio as I painted her. She has always believed in being herself, being brave and embracing what has made her different, particular in an industry where image is very manufactured and controlled. And, this is what I love about her and why I felt the need to paint my version of Shingai.
