Afros in Bloom-2/Pierre Jean Louis

Pierre Jean Louis, based in Nj/Ny/Philly, is a painter, cineaste, photographer, collage artist.

Here is a refreshing opportunity to simply enjoy the embellishment and the head nod to flower power. The continued socio-political issues surrounding “unkempt”, nappy hair or straightened respectability continue to pervade afro-descendants. Again another instance where the private body is a site upon which public issues play out.

You can see more of Pierre Jean Louis on  Instagram. But here is a preview.
