I Be Lady o
"She go say I be lady o" is a famous lyric by the late Fela Kuti, who in his song about African women living in cities, who after the post-colonial era, began adopting western ideologies about the female identity, as the "lady." We see this painting as a dialogue of these dual identities "African Woman" and "Lady" , depicted by the striking contrast between blue and red. To us, this piece is one of our top picks as it is a stunning representation of identity dilemmas that are universal in our increasingly multicultural world.
