Artist's Statement
" "
Art is a life journey, where time and regular practice brings one to maturity and reality. The more time I spend with art my existence on mother earth is defined and my regard for my creator is amplified because of the talent God has endowed me. What a privilege!

Inspiration of my art is drawn from nature, the society, my life experience and daily activities. I hate to be bound to a particular medium of expression. Anything around me is a possible medium for painting. My art is narrowed to mixed media (Assemblage, collage/​fabric collage). Although sometimes I do portraits and impressionist landscapes. Mixed media gives me the freedom to express myself and recycle materials around me to create something un-conventional.

Basically, my works are decorative and colourful in nature. I use newspapers, tissue papers, cartons, fabric, yarn, wood dust and African motifs on my canvas to give my work a unique texture and fashionable style. I see my art works as a customized aesthetic piece any person would want to purchase from the gallery. I am more into improvisation (answering questions like what should an artists do with the whole lot of things around him?). I try to answer those questions with my 2-dimentional artworks.
I have always loved the cubist movement, their works that revolves around improvisation of material.
