Raqs Baladi
Oil on Linen
42 x 56

“Raqs Baladi” (belly dancing) is a portrait of Mel Anya and the Middle Eastern band, Baharat. Inspired by John Singer Sargents, El Jaleo, I wanted to capture the history and subject matter, the empowerment and beauty, the form and costumes in this expression of dance.
