This painting was inspired by Black Lives Matter which was especially spoken about after the death of George Floyd in May 2020 which triggered many protests where the raised fist became a symbol. The background is inspired by African fabric chosen because of how bold, beautiful and intricate it is which is a reflection of the African heritage.
