Since she was a child, South African digital artist, Naledi Modupi, has been fascinated with women’s faces. Today, it’s a focus of her art, in which she renders them in a semi-abstract way to celebrate all kinds of feminine beauty. The multidisciplinary artist uses semi-abstract techniques, vibrant colors, and vivid shapes to restructure faces, as “faces are able to tell a person’s story and experiences”, says the artist. Modupi’s creations are intricate and tastefully depict the abundant ways in which Black beauty can manifest. Using her art to encourage confidence and joy in those who see themselves within it, Modupi’s series of artwork gave space for the many sides to Black women that the world often attempts to diminish.
