MAN-AKIN – KAFEI WHITE + SHAUNY BEN-NATAN {EXCLUSIVE EDITORIAL}

SHAUNY_MARCEL_PAINTING_0234 as Smart Object-1

Kafei White‘s exclusive editorial from his series ‘MAN-akin‘, a collaborative series with local Melbourne, Australia artist Shauny Ben-Natan  and androgynous model Marcel Taranto. The series ‘MAN-akin’ is the creative collaboration love-child of painter Shauny Ben-Natan, and photographer Kafei White where the body of work came about from Shauny’s painted ‘Study of a Mannequin‘ series featured in Kafei White’s ‘Koko Mag‘ project. They took this painterly project’s fascination with concepts of femininity and masculinity further, with the inclusion of an androgynous model and a number of aesthetic styles. Colour, form and texture play a major role in highlighting this unique interplay between the worlds of gender stereotype and understanding. With a bold red backdrop, electric orange light-work, expressive brush strokes, protruding shapes represent the masculine. In contrast the feminine is represented through soft hues, exposed skin, delicate and subtly highlighted hair strands and a longing voyueristic gaze.
