Thus came my latest project, inspired by the Black Panther Party, founded in 1966 by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, in Oakland, California. With the ongoing issues of racism in today’s society, it was even more important to bring modernised and fresh Panthers to St Paul’s Cathedral, London. The models represent all Black Beauty, inspired by the likes of Angela Davis and Kathleen Cleaver.
