British artist Shannon Bono draws on scientific foundations to inform compelling tributes to Black womanhood, defying colonial histories at every turn.
The process of creating A Reflection of You saw Bono collaborate closely with a print studio in London to reimagine a pre-existing painting, layering the original green palette with luxurious gold tones. Furthermore, the work’s surface is hand-finished by the artist with a series of details in 3D pearlescent cream — making every print unique.
This work is part of We Are History collection curated by Aindrea Emelife.
Shannon Bono was born in 1995 in the UK. She now lives and works in London as both a practicing artist and associate lecturer at UAL.
