Artwork: Favorite Decade

John "Jamal" Nwabiani

About the artwork:
I was inspired by fashion in the 70s. The 70s was the decade with the most pop-culture fashion and color. When thinking of a black woman in the 70s, the few things that come to mind are large colorful sunglasses and a BIG afro. Let's not forget the polaroid camera to capture everything in its beauty.
