If you’re like me, you spent at least part of your Thanksgiving weekend binge-watching Spike Lee’s remake of his first film “She’s Gotta Have It.”
Naturally, as Nola Darling is an artist, her work plays a central role in the series. And as talented as the lead actress Dewanda Wise is, she wasn’t the woman behind those paintings. The real artist is Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. On her Instagram page, Fazlalizadeh said that Spike Lee approached her about the “She’s Gotta Have It” project three years ago. And the rest is history.
Check out some of the behind the scenes work that went into the artwork featured on the show and some of Fazlalizadeh’s other work, which you might have seen before.
