  • Black Iconography is a series of mixed media portraits by the artist Nina Franco that intends to (re)signify the image of people from the diaspora. The images aim to engage in a visual dialogue with the audience about black iconography in order to (re)construct a visual culture, opposing the picturesque images created by the colonial gaze.
