One of my favorite movies of all time is a classic film by the name of Belly.
The visuals of this film itself are what first caught my attention when I first watched it during my senior year of high school. From the beginning intro where rappers Nas and DMX are walking into the nightclub and black lights are used to change the colors of everything in the main entry to the club, to DMX’s house being in pure white and black.
I have always enjoyed the look and vibe of this film.
Douglas, Keara. Keisha. 2017. Acrylic. 20×16 inches.
The main character that I love from Belly would be Keisha. She was tall, that pure dark skin, full lips and full hips. Drop dead gorgeous. Her character in the film was of rapper DMX’s girl friend and is what inspired this acrylic painting. The scene where Keisha was laying on the bed in a white lingerie set, with the blue and black undertones in the background shown below was my reference photo for this piece done on a 20×16 inch wrapped canvas surface.
The original Keisha painting has sold and has a new home in South Carolina.
