In Conversation with Ivorian Artist Laetitia Ky on Building Whimsical Hair Sculptures and Confidence
We catch up with Ivorian artist Laetitia Ky on her natural hair journey, Afrofuturism, building confidence and more.
Hair is not an unlikely creative medium. After all, we style our hair into cascading spirals, intricate braids and sleek, bone straight tresses at will. We wear afros like halos, cornrows as crowns, locs like ropes that hold the history of our past, present and future. Yes, we have always used hair as an artistic expression, designing our kinky, coily, curly or straight strands into masterpieces.
