About the Work

This series explores the role that sports and the black athlete/figure play in society; placing an emphasis on the perceptions and stereotypes about the black image. Using the technique of digital collage, a wide variety of popular based images is manipulated and compiled together to make the artwork, which takes the form of a sportsperson.
