About the Mama Africa painting:

The Sedona painting is a part of the Through Her Eyes collection.

This painting emerged after listening to “Born a Crime”, an audiobook by Trevor Noah where he describes his childhood and early youth in South Africa. Among other things, the way he describes his mother stroke me the most. Beautiful, independent, rebellious but compassionate, enormously strong, and resilient — she became my inspiration for this painting. Although I haven’t used a real photo as a reference, I painted the emotions her image evoked in me. For more about it read this blog post.

This print comes unframed and ships in a flat package.

About the print series:

This is an open edition print series printed on archival quality paper.

Shows & recognitions:

The original painting was a part of the group show at Off Track Gallery of San Dieguito Art Guild, Encinitas, CA in September 2020 and was awarded an Honorable Mention ribbon.

About the Through Her Eyes series:

A series of women’s faces, fictional and symbolic characters, vibrant colors that represent cultural and social aspects of different places and times filtered through my personal and cultural perception.
