"Grand, misunderstood, too often unseen. She lacks vanity although she is pure perfection. Prideful swagger, strong shoulders back, head lifted to the heavens. Crown beautifully sits on her head. Looking like nothing less than royalty. And royal she is. There are turns and stares at this regal phenomenon. This enigma of a woman. Flawless and everlasting. She Owns The Crown. Adelani."
“Adelani” is a Yoruba name that translates to “We own the crown”. Benny Bing's upcoming exhibition will feature 8 large scale paintings of black women in different vibrant colorful head wraps. Each head wrap symbolizes a crown on the subjects, and signifies cultural identity, individuality and Pride. This exhibit is the first series of Benny's Afrocentric head wrap collection.
