Afros in Art
*Mini Blog Post*

I was in the Rich Mix in Bethnal Green yesterday, about to get settled with my laptop and a £2 pot of afternoon tea, when the picture above caught my eye.
Im officially turning into my mother! The same way she used to get all excited when a Black person appeared on TV, is the same way I get excited nowadays when I spot natural hair (albeit a lot less vocally).

The detail of the girl's hair struck a cord with me, as tends to happen when I spot art works depicting Afro hair, so I ventured down the stairs to have a look at the exhibition.

It turns out the Artist was present and had just opened the exhibition today!

Its a small exhibition but I really liked a lot of Rasheed's work.
The exhibition is on until next Wednesday 11th and is FREE, so if you get a chance go have a look.

Art appreciation and a spot of afternoon tea - How terribly cultured of me! Lol
