Liliann Uwanyaze by Joya Cousin

This is an original portrait painting by artist, Joya Cousin, of the Sudanese model Liliann Uwanyaze. Painted in profile, this portrait celebrates the traditional natural corn-row hairstyle worn by girls and women of the African diaspora for generations. It is painted in an expressive style with visible brushstrokes of color, and a texture-rich palette-knife painted background. 

This painting is mounted on stretcher bars, with painted edges, ready to hang.
