Pelo Bueno #5

$13.00 - $32.00

Print Dimensions: 5 x 7", 8 x 10", or 16 x 20".

This limited series is titled “Pelo Bueno, Pelo Malo (Good Hair, Bad Hair). I have been working on the development of this series since 2014. It explores the misconception of Black hair when considered “malo” or “bad”. I grew up hearing such words in my Dominican culture and wanted to create stimulating visuals that would elevate Black hair and redefine these negative narratives. I also wanted to create images that would crossover between Black-American and Afro-Latinx culture in a way that would reflect its ties to one another, a sense of pride in shared roots.

Simple lines, bold colors, and juxtaposed elements fill up the space creating a sense of tension within two ideas. What is good hair? What is bad hair?
