Still I Rise by Maya Angelou is one of the most inspirational and recognizable poems of the 21st century, celebrating self-love and acceptance. At Poem Analysis, we wanted to illustrate this beautiful poem in art format, onto your very on original-design Samsung case.
Some notes from Emma, the artist behind this piece:
In this painting inspired by Maya Angelou’s ‘Still I Rise,’ I chose to depict a cresting wave, highlighted by the light of the sun. I broadened my colour palette in the water itself, allowing pinks and greens to mix with the yellows and blues. I hope that this painting speaks to the strength that Angelou’s speaker is exhibiting in the poem.I was particularly inspired by the lines: “With the certainty of tides, / Just like hopes springing high, / Still I’ll rise.” The ocean, its tides, and waves are images that pops up multiple times in this poem. It is clear that Angelou saw it as a representative of an inner power she hoped to encourage with ‘Still I Rise.’
