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.
