The subject within this biro pen portrait returns the gaze of the viewer, with an intensity that shows the frustration of the archetypal disenfranchised ethnic male in western society. I seek to create a discourse regarding the prejudicial ‘white gaze’ in relation to ethnic minorities. With minorities usually being undermined by the mainstream media. I feel that this hierarchy of status shows a somewhat paradoxical reflection of colonial ideals in relation to the transatlantic slave trade.
