Popular Nigerian artist Laolu Senbanjo features intricate Yoruba body art, and he has had his African art explode in the media due to being Beyonce’s chosen body artist for her song ‘Sorry’. His Sacred Art Of The Ori collection features highly detailed body art which was inspired by his own Yoruba culture. His art can be classified as ‘Afromysterics’, representative of the mystery of the African thought pattern. This piece shows a woman decorated in brightly coloured, complicated patterns which highlight her natural African beauty but also show how these traditional patterns can be translated in a modern world.
