thenjiwe niki nkosi

What is a hero? Who should be called a hero? These are just a couple of the questions behind this series titled, yes, “Heroes”. This powerful portrait series is the work of New York born, South Africa based artist Thenjiwe Niki Nkosi. It’s a huge series of gorgeous portraits, but I was able to control myself and just picked a handful of my favorites. The people she has selected range from Thenjiwe’s own grandmother, poets and artists, to refugees and civil rights leaders. Powerful, moving, and beautifully painted.
