Inspired by Angelica Dass’ 'Humanae' that demonstrates the great amount of diversity we have in the world, my artwork portrays the lack of representation of races within the beauty industry. Symbols were made by the sgraffito technique with women of different races combined with jigsaw pieces to display how they are part of an incomplete puzzle, just like they are a part of the diverse world, yet they are still being excluded and not represented in the media.
