PEOPLE WE LOVE :: SHINGAI SHONIWA :: B.A.N.Y.C.

Shingai Shoniwa has never followed trends.

The Noisettes singer says her family inspired her to incorporate her African heritage into her look and encouraged her to create an individual style from a young age.

She revealed: ”My mum always encouraged me to be myself; when everybody was following the same trends she gave me the confidence to embrace my uniqueness.

”Then, when I was about 11, I went to live with my grandmother in Malawi, which is where I learnt to mix styles and experiment.”

Shingai likes to express herself via her hair and is constantly experimenting with her tresses because she finds it the most creative way to change up her look.

The 31-year-old star added to The Telegraph newspaper: ”Lots of people with Afro hair can find it difficult and time-consuming to maintain, but from a young age I was trying out different things with my hair, rather than following fashion.

”I’ve had everything from curls to quiffs to an array of updos. I’ve never limited myself to one look or shape, and have always thought hair should just be fun.”

B.A.N.Y.C. CALENDAR :: LONDON :: GREY AREA ART SHOW

Can’t wait for the Hallows’ Eve to indulge your theoretical vices? Opening next week at Shizaru Gallery in London’s Mayfair, GREY AREA is curating a shop of art objects titled BAD FOR ME to complement BAD FOR YOU, an exhibition curated by Beth Rudin DeWoody.

 

The exhibition examines the human relationship with what is ʻbadʼ through examples like drugs, alcoholism, gambling, materialism, vanity, and cigarettes. At once humorous and grim, the art and objects in these shows avoid judgment and allow the consumer to draw their own conclusions. If you’re in town for Frieze, join us for a private preview on Tuesday, October 9 from 6:30-8:30 PM. The exhibition continues October 10 – November 23 in London and online.

 

Following the theme of the vice made nice, all the pieces at GREY AREA tackle a different instrument of iniquity making them seductive, amusing or even wearable. Cuddle with a soft bad habit by MEGAN WHITMARSH. Then savor a chocolate sculpture by VADIS TURNER or a resin-cast pill set by RAY GEARY. Pills, guns, blood, and cigarettes; you name it we have it. Just don’t expect any on-site psychiatrists.
