My art originates from a sense of homesickness, a feeling rooted in the frustration of being unable to converse in my native language for years. The gradual fading of my mother tongue, coupled with the inability to reunite with family during holidays and special events, has led me to question why life must unfold in this manner. Am I merely unlucky, or perhaps cursed? In the midst of this existential inquiry, I discovered purpose through oil painting. It became my vessel for self-education, a means to delve into the rich history of black people across the globe, far away from their ancestral homes. Through my art, I craft portraits, not merely as visual representations but as powerful connections between the past and the present. Each stroke of the brush serves as a bridge, linking my story with that of others and weaving narratives that are profoundly personal and cherished. In painting these portraits, I find not only a medium for creative expression but also a profound way to tell stories that are close to my heart. Each artwork becomes a testament to resilience, a tribute to the enduring spirit of black people, and a beacon of hope that transcends the boundaries of language and geography. Through my art, I navigate the depths of homesickness, transforming it into a vibrant tapestry of cultural heritage and shared humanity.
