Beautiful Jesus, Mariama McCarthy
The introduction to a short interview with the artist, a Touareg artist from Niger who now lives in Maryland:
Mariama McCarthy is an inspirational artist whose works echo raw human emotion in beautiful and moving ways. A Touareg Frida Kahlo, some have said, but her art, as all art, transcends her identity, her own experience and her world reaching into the crevices of every human emotion no words could ever explain.
