Delmaine is based in Capetown, South Africa. And his artwork is dedicated to the beauty of women, particularly women of color. He has a love for melanin and afros that makes me blush! He has had the pleasure of illustrating for some well-known brands, creates personalized artwork for clients including children’s books, music covers, and more. I am very impressed with the variety of women he paints. You can tell that he finds something truly beautiful about them all. I love that.
Delmaine has amazingly affordable prints available of all the artwork featured above. Click any picture for more details Or click here.
Bringing together the combination of flow the DJ and Delmaine on this piece is an odd ode to women. But the art is so beautiful it is hard not to love the women that are part of this entangled relationship. I think that is my ultimate point. Just because these women or men maybe unfaithful, or the victims of unfaithfulness, it doesn’t shake their beauty. They are still human. They aren’t broken or dismembered pieces of society. It is interesting to study the romantic relationships of humans as we have evolved over time. But that is another post for another time.
This song reminds me of a lot of men. That is probably because the infidelities of men have been broadcast for us all via social media, entertainment, music, and every other forum available. I think that it has an unfortunate effect on men that are faithful. We subconsciously believe that men being faithful in a monogamous relationship is a huge accomplishment. Well, the nature of monogamy is faithfulness. The bigger accomplishments are the way you treat your partner and whatever you all building. It allows men a certain level of complacency and facilitates an imbalance. Women that are willing to look the other way are more likely to marry men with greater means. The greater the means, the harder her head is stuck the other way.
But that is an outsider opinion. And shaded by my own experiences and the mixture of my cultures. I wonder how other people experience infidelity. Is it something equally shared between men and women? Do the same number of women cheat? The woman in this song apparently has something at home too. Is it human nature to be unfaithful? Are we going against our true selves in monogamous relationships? Paving the way for the type of pain this song would cause the wife or husband at home? What if they never know? Is there harm? Interesting questions posed by a dope song.The entire scenario… #Wilde
