Ivorian Painter Celebrates Big, Beautiful African Women

There are still a few men in the world that think "big" is beautiful and Ivorian painter Augustin Kassi is one of them.

An exhibition celebrating full-figured African women opened in the Ivory Coast's main city of Abidjan. Augustin told BBC News:

“I took the stand to say: ‘No, you’re beautiful – that’s how God has created you. Take care with what you eat, do a little sport, and we love you.' I love them,” Kassi told the BBC.
