There is a richness of culture in life. It is the closeness of life and art I seek to portray. Art is a diary I try to write, through people and places. I aim to reflect my own personal diary, but more importantly, how the exploration of my own identity relates to my experiences, observations and study of a world so interrelated in so many aspects, religion, faith, custom, trade, subjugation, love, oppression, truths and fabrication, historical and current.
Born in West Africa and as a citizen of the UK from an early age, presence and heritage are inter-married. This the same with a large part of citizens everywhere. It is primarily from this approach that I portray through painting, my take. The aim, simply to spread love and a better reflection and understanding.
