Geometric shapes are very prominent in African patterns especially the Aztec patterns of the African tribes. This pattern in particular is one of my favourites I really like the colour choices here as although it is a very traditional pattern the striking blend of blues and red s gives it a contemporary feel. I would like to add a striking colour to my work to break through the colours inspired by African mammals maybe utilising one of the many bright colours seen in African birds.
