African Art by Helen Parker-Jayne Isibor By Hassan Hajjaj

This piece is part of a collaborative piece between photographer Hassan Hajjaj and popular musician The Venus Bushfires (Helen Parker-Jayne Isibor). It is part of his ‘My Rock Stars Experimental’ Africa art collection, which showcases unique African musicians and singers. The images by Hajjaj capture the intensity of the colours of North Africa, despite the fact the video and images were shot in London. He manages to inject the vibrancy of Africa into his work. This image of Isibor highlights her uniquely African yet cosmopolitan style, with a science-fiction-esque head covering, and futuristic sunglasses juxtaposed with traditional African garb.
