What does your art bring to you?
Creating is giving life how I feel and what words can’t describe. Watching everything emerge from nothing, even though sometimes during the process there is incertitude of how this will end. But it is a journey.
We are filled with lots of energy and all kinds of emotions and putting all this on a blank canvas helps me filter and manage all that.
What artwork would you like to see in real life?
Artworks that cause great discussions. Arts that expose matters of life and in society.
Something like Banksy’s creations and his way of doing stuff. We tend to say it more anonymously rather than when people know who it is.
What are your inspirations?
Afro culture; I used to not be proud of who I was, not appreciating my African origin. I now create the representations I lacked to see when I was younger.
Besides drawing, I am a plant momma. I love growing plants, it gives me calmness and teaches me patience. I love including them in my creations, that really changes the whole vibe.
I sometimes observe people’s interactions outside, watching how they talk etc. We all have personal issues and we cope by trying to mask them and live. It helps me to tell those issues through my arts, even though we might be the ones going through this.
What are your dreams?
My dream is to see art being valued. That people see how much it can change lives.
And see my Art displayed very big, on murals or malls or something like that.
What is your favourite quote?
“Art is not always about pretty things. It’s about who we are, what happened to us, and how our lives are affected.”
”If it were easy, everybody would do it.” and I apply it in my life every time I face a difficult situation.
