most inspiring thing at bam

June 1, 2010

this painting by abdul badi was the most inspiring thing i saw at dance africa last weekend.

i was glad that i got a chance to shake mr. badi’s hand.

its too bad that im poor and wasnt able to purchase this painting.

i really love it.

it’s of a young surma girl from ethiopia or sudan i presume.

isnt she gorgeous.

i like the purple in her lips and the checkered fabric of blue and pink.

and he captures her bone structure so well.

the cake is that far off gaze,

like she is trying to remember the details of what she is witnessing so she can tell the story in depth later.
