Artist Transforms Their Afros Into Beautiful Flowery Galaxies

Pierre Jean-Louis, a visual artist from US, creates mesmerizing portraits of black women by transforming their hair into flowery galaxies. By turning their Afros into works of art in his series, “Black Girl Magic,” Pierre wants to let black women know how much he appreciates them for embracing their African heritage.

“A lot of [black women] are brainwashed to not appreciate their natural beauty,” Pierre said. “Especially in 2016. Earlier this year I saw so many black queens who feel comfortable enough and proud to show their African heritage so I decided to start this series to let them know how much I appreciate them and their natural beauty. I just want them to see how we black men see them when they’re rocking their natural hair. We see nothing but #strong #Goddesses & #queens thank you.”
