Pick Your Afro Daddy Mixed Media on Canvas
Erykah Badu said "You need to pick yo afro daddy/ because it's flat on one side". Anybody who's ever had an afro of any size knows that feeling. And if you don't, maybe you've seen the photos from back in the day where every uncle had a huge afro and no smile on their face. This is an homage to that idea. The hair is made of felt and sits about 3 or four inches away from the canvas. Misshapen and beautiful, a tribute to all my uncles and all the uncles, and fathers, and men who grew their afro unashamed.
