Côte d’Ivoire-based designer, Loza Maléombho continues to wow us with her creations and her cool self portraits, tagged #AlienEdits – but now it’s her followers that are wowing us, with their impressive fan art of Ms Maléombho being shared via the hashtag #LMBYARTISTS.
The works are recreations of the talent’s self portraits, which see Loza rocking all sorts of headgear and, according to the creative, were started;
“On the day Darren Wilson was cleared of murder charges in the Michael Brown Shooting…
I did this with a mission to self validate, self define, self nurture and free from stereotypes all while celebrating culture diversity and culture similarities of Black people worldwide.
I believe it’s time we blur the lines between ourselves (Africans, American Africans, African Americans) and stick together as one. #blacklivesmatter“
The fan art covers inkings, paintings, drawings and illustrations that are as impressive as the designer’s original and ongoing photography series.
Team SPICE will be looking out for new editions to both the #AlienEdits photoseres and the #LMBYARTISTS series via Loza Maléombho’s Instagram account here, and suggest those who enjoy striking portraiture do the same.
