“Medina is an artist from California who studied at Spéos Photographic Institute in Paris, France (2010). She’s been based in Lagos, Nigeria since 2011. She works in a multitude of artistic mediums including photography, collage, painting, print making and video. Medina’s thematic practice has been greatly shaped by the years she’s spent in Lagos and on the African continent where she seeks to undermine negative stereotypes and minimizing storylines common to Nigeria and Africa. Her work focuses on identity, tradition, style, the female form, acculturation, ethnocentrism, cultural homogenization, globalization, modernity and more recently, concepts addressing indigenous wisdom, healing and technology. Her work has been exhibited internationally including Untitled Miami, the Investec Cape Town Art Fair and featured in Vogue, Smithsonian Magazine, CNN Africa, BBC News among other publications and has been collected by Fitchburg Art Museum, General Mills Private Art Collection and Fondation Zinsou.”

  1. Very interesting, colorful styles. I think my favorites are the pink with cowrie shells and the green coiled braid.

  3. How in the world do you “undo” these without pulling it out….as in “you make me want to pull my hair out.

  4. I love this idea of hair being a sculptural medium and the colours are so vibrant. The pink braids with shells and the purple hair at the start of your post are my favourites but they are all fabulous.

  5. This is some lovely colorful hair which makes me think of the Rolling Stones song, She’s A Rainbow! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6c1BThu95d8

  6. I love my colored braids, though at the moment I have some more subtle colors in. http://skyscapesforthesoul.com/jpgs/jeniheadshot2017_w.jpg. I don’t think I quite have the youth and beauty to carry off some of these styles, though.
