Artist Statement

Shower of blessings
Shower of blessings
Among the most essentials to achieve better living in the world are unity and hope. Interestingly, unity and hope has been the basis of my studio practice for thirteen years.

My paintings emphasis the idea of human activities and impacts in the world. My work focuses on daily activities and settings of my immediate environment and sometimes events, such as the representation of market scenes, rooftops, and riverine settings which are characteristics of many developing nations; these scenes are often clustered yet never defies unity. Additionally, I explore the relationship between the characters and their environments. To achieve this, I use the formal elements and principles of art harmoniously, such as textures, values, balance, spaces, and unity sparingly to create a sense of appeal to my amazing viewers. 
 

However, some of my painting are abstract which stemmed from my contention with life’s vicissitudes in life at some point, as a young artist. Each work provided me with therapeutic relief, also a medium of self-mortification and an escape from the burdens of the moment to the ideals my heart craved for. Lost in my a world of possibilities, my paintings, therefore, gave me a purpose for living. The paintings that I created during the period of aspiration for positivity and purification are what I termed "Purity Series"; thereby, the color white became prominent in my paintings. The series reflect how a painting can influence individual emotions. Afterwards, the proverbial ‘dark cloud’ has since given way to sunshine, thus giving birth to such works as: ‘Shower of Blessings, Celebration -sold at auction in Geneva-, Victory and Joyful dance.
