This is one of my most popular pieces called “Zulu Queen” the bantu knots hairstyle presented comes from the tribe in southern Africa called the Zulu people. The Zulu tribe is one of the largest ethic group and nation in south Africa with an estimate of 10-12 million people living mainly in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. Growing up I was always insecure about my hair because it was very thin, curly, and short. Due to those barriers mentioned before hairstyles were very limiting for me and often made me feel left out. As I got older, I started to embrace my hair and what I still could do, I became more in love with being different and unique.

This image is apart of the “Zulu Queen” Original series I often paint a lot of female-based paintings, so I decided to do something powerful for the men to embrace. Men have always been taught to be strong and hold their emotions inside because this is often seen as a sign of weakness. In doing this they carrier around so much angry and pain towards life and loved ones. In life you must embrace all the good and bad without experiencing sadness or pain you wouldn’t be able to appreciate and understand true happiness
