Kimathi Donkor, Queens of the Undead series, 2010
These paintings resurrect the undead glory of charismatic black women who each helped define the modern world, and are revered as amazing armed heroines in their homelands – a lot like Joan of Arc. Of course, I enjoy quoting imagery from their own times, but I also want to reflect the turbulent power such bold figures still exert on our contemporary imagination. - Kimathi Donkor
obviously Kimathi Donkor is hard as nails bruv, and he’s showing at Rivington Place until 24 November.
