A literal but whimsical take on a popular Swahili saying: Akili ni Nywele (Kila mtu ana zake) [Intelligence is [like] hair, every person has his/her own."]
  • "Akili ni nywele (kila mtu ana zake)" is a swahili proverb that translates to "Intelligence is [like] hair, every person has his/her own."

    It is used to potray as sense of uniqueness in an individuals intelligence, opinion and/or creativity
    I took it to heart while coming up with abstract forms of people's "Physical intelligence" .Literally "Inteligence as hair!" Had fun with this particular project!

    They also serve as my first poster series for sale as digital prints. 
  • If you like it, consider downloading them as wallpapers and A2 size prints!
