Colour of The Coloured

Colour of the Coloured investigates the issues of identity crises, looking through the prism of the hue of the skin.  The work is a visual interpretation of a term that has separated a race from other races with overt and covert superiority. The word coloured is often ascribed to individuals of African descent in today’s clime. Despite advancements in race relations, the “politics of the skin” in the 21st century still exposes  the plight of people of African descent with economic, social and  geographical  implications.
