Greatjoy Ndlovu features his art on #TopBilling
In this week's Top Billing we met up with incredible local designer Greatjoy Ndlovu. If you can't get enough of his art scroll below.
This piece is titled "The Rise of the Modern day Woman".
According to Greatjoy: "This piece is inspired by the very interesting events of a global shift towards overthrowing the 'man's world' ideology. It discards exclusive male dominance in all affairs ,in pursuit for a societal balance in power and influence ,as well as achieve mutual respect between the two sexes. The submissive position of the male figure; his battered face and the outstretched hands of the woman depict not only her gain of power but her courage to exercise it.
"The leg behind leans forward as of she were charging towards him ,the frown on her face shades the light on her relentlessness in her cause; her determination to make her mark. The other leg tramples the broad shoulder of the male figure to the ground in utter contempt to the apprehensions that assert a man's shoulders as the ones capable of handling the burdens of all politics and economics. The exposed thigh generates some degree of sensuality to the style she brings with her in everything she touches."
