HOLY AFRO

The SS10 runway in Paris saw the comeback of the full-on fro at Louis Vuitton, and cartoon candy floss do's at Commes des Garcons. Meanwhile one of my absolute favourite contemporary artists Chris Ofili is currently showing at the Tate Britain. His appearance on The Culture Show the other night reminded me just how much I love his work since as a young girl going to see an exhibition of his at The Serpentine Gallery just before he won the Turner Prize in 1998. If you live in London I urge you to go see his wonderful work at the Tate Britain. His unique blend of current affairs, African heritage, hip hop culture and his use of texture and elephant dung is a sight to behold!
