Yayo which means mother in swahili seems a fitting title for the portrait of a woman who played a major part in birthing and raising the fusion of hip-hop and neo-soul as we know it today. This living legend is highly respected and reverenced among music enthusiasts everywhere and it was an honor to paint her. 

"Yayo"- Original Recreation

  • An Original Recreation means that your artwork will be created completely and entirely by hand.The artist uses the exact same method of creation that was used in the original work of art. The artist makes every effort to make the recreated artwork look as closely as possible to the example shown in the photo. This IS NOT A PRINT. As a natural result of being created by hand this piece will vary slightly making the artwork unique.
