I’m interested in depicting compelling figurative portrait paintings from different generations. My point of focus is the Eyes, Nose and Mouth which is where our emotions are best portrayed, I also believe it helps us better visually experience one another’s feelings; an exchange of information without using words.
My Paintings help create an intriguing dialogue between the subject’s message and the viewer. My work compels the viewer to become physically and emotionally invested in the subject’s story.
I aim to celebrate, capture the spirit, essence and heritage of my subjects and use this as an opportunity to lend the world a glance into the lives and struggles of people whose stories are yet to be fully told.
My paintings are meant to trigger emotions of pride or shame, honor or disgust and sometimes even humor,It’s all about the story of my subjects, which words cannot fully explain.
My knowledge of impressionism greatly informs my technical practice, as well its psychological agency. Combining 19th century French Impressionism and contemporary African social realism, I aim to form a new visual language whereby a layering of brushstrokes represents a multiplicity of characters, lifestyles, and perspectives. My new spin on impressionism movement meditates upon light that is dark purple, revealing a spectrum of colour, energy, and character. Multi-colours translate into multi-cultures, where contrasting identity constructions can co-exist: local meets global, indigenous meets diaspora, traditional meets contemporary.
