Warrior Maternity Body Art

The amazing talented Nneka Gigi drops another dope project, a tribal maternity shoot that was inspired by the works of Keith Haring, Basquiat, and Grace Jones

The purpose was to make her look like a warrior. I researched several pictures from tribes in Africa to get ideas for brush stroke patterns.

Nneka found this project to be a surreal experience.


"Zara started to dance when I painted her belly. It was such a surreal experience to be so close to a new life after losing my uncle this year. I felt his spirit and Zara’s. Immediately the design changed and I wanted to make her look like what she is..a beautiful warrior".  

"The experience was remarkable and after it was all said and done..we cried together and hugged. I’m looking forward to my next body art client". - Nneka Gigi
