'Women's Identity V' by Mwamba Chikwemba beautiful portrait of a black woman holding her hands together. 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 stunning charcoal drawing is so empowering!

'Here I wanted to capture the strength and the joy of a woman. Inspired by my mom, despite her responsibilities as a wife and a mother, she still stands out for what she always loves to do (her career). She's a strong and very hard working woman.' - M. Chikwemba
