I love to see male perspectives of female beauty, in it’s purest sense it is love, it is peace, it is reverence. I asked Demar Douglas what intrigues him more about Black women and his response will move you.
“What intrigues me most about Black Women is the pure strength, beauty, and the ability to overcome struggles. Not to discredit any other culture, but to embrace what I’ve known from birth to present is an inner portrait of a sacrificial soul in the purest form of the portrait. Being a Black man in America has so many challenges as a whole, for me to imagine how much more a woman must endure has prompted and inspired me to paint a platform where the Beautiful Struggle of the Black African American Woman can be held in the same regards as the Mona Lisa.”
