Somali-British digital artist Aisha Mohamed shows how black women's versatility goes beyond having hair in her newest series, "I Am Not My Hair."
Aisha Mohamed is a 22-year-old digital artist from South London who takes images of our favorite black beauties and places them in an ethereal, Afrofuturist realm.
Mohamed took interest in creating digital art since she was a teen, but she says she had to walk away from creating and take a break. "Back then it was mostly just about creating art from my favorite TV shows and films. After a while, I realized it wasn't really fulfilling me the way I needed," she says via email. "After taking a long hiatus, when I did return to creating digital pieces, I knew that it had to be in conjunction with something that resonated with me. Black women were the answer."
