The Lupita Effect is my second portrait of Mexican-Kenyan actress and fashion  heroine Lupita Nyong'o. The beauty and determination of this young star is depicted against the vibrant yellow background, contrasting with the bold blue stripes of her dress. This is a portrait of strength as she is full of hope for the future.

Working predominantly from photographs and magazines, Anika Manuel's subject matter focuses on people, depicting them sometimes as a form of social commentary, other times presenting them exactly as they are, for the viewer to imbue with their own ideas. Recycling imagery is important to her general concerns, as there already exist so many undervalued images which haven’t yet been fully explored.
