I use my work to illustrate the complexities in identity caused by acculturation and racism. I explore themes such as hyper-masculinity and prejudice, referencing their direct connection to colonisation, and the various ways these problems can manifest within modern society. Taking inspiration from the theories of Frantz Fanon in his books ‘The Wretched of the Earth’ and ‘Black Skin, White Masks’, I primarily focus on the socially normalized preconception to associate 'black' with 'wrong'. I aim to redefine the portrayal of black men through the use of oil painting, a medium traditionally reserved to perpetuate western ideals.
