Portraits of black influential individuals.

Portraits include the UK’s first black MP and race equality campaigner, the late Bernie Grant, those breaking the mould like Barack Obama, model Winnie Harlow and the late Nelson Mandela, and trailblazers including Beyonce, Prince, Idris Elba, Tinie Tempah, Naomi Campbell, Lauryn Hill and human rights activist, musician Fela Kuti. Also featured are family members and other high profile individuals.

“I wanted to showcase these works of individuals who have had the courage to do things differently, and have all contributed to society in ways that have offered inspiration and a fresh perspective on how black people are seen. They have all been a major influence and inspiration to me, and shaped my journey in art, spirituality and philosophy.”
