'Women's Identity III' by Mwamba Chikwemba is a great portrait of a black woman. The artist focuses on subjects of femininity, authenticity, identity, and richness of black culture. Her models are often friends and relatives and noticing details of their behavior, style, and look, the artist enters a conversation about personal vs. collective, original vs. foreign, and authentic vs. standardized. This positive female drawing has an empowering effect!

'This is an image of a friend of mine Twillie. She is a very beautiful and very courageous woman. Even the way she ties up her hair with a head wrap is a typical afro style that illuminates her confidence and pride' - M. Chikwemba
