The article focuses on the physical appearance and artwork of Sonya Clark, an artist, inspired by her own African heritage. Clark is an American-African artist who became interested in both traditional African arts and the complexity of expressive arts developed throughout the African Diaspora. She is known for her royal hairdos from ancient Benin, Yoruba beaded crowns, sweet grasses baskets and scarifications with contemporary forms including American schoolgirls' braids, Rastafarian dreadlocks, and 1970s-style of Afro puffs. Clark has continued to expand her interest in spiritual and cultural communication, the nature of dialogue between cells, the logic of underlying organic growth and recently, the intelligent linkage between human bodies and brains.
