VIEW IN MY ROOM
A series of my African people portraits was inspired by my several trips to this amazing continent. I was deeply impressed by the beauty and diversity of its nature and people, as well as by its dramatic history. Handmade oil portrait 'Nkrumah' was painted by a palette knife on cotton canvas in expressionist style. The painting can be a sophisticated decoration for a contemporary style interior. Created and kept in a pet-free and smoke-free environment. Please note that the colors and saturation of the painting’s images may slightly differ from the original as they could be affected by the monitor settings. The painting is stretched on a wooden stretcher, unframed, the canvas edges are exposed, but accurately cut and painted dark brown, therefore the artwork could be hung without a frame; iron plates with metal wire are fixed on the back. The painting is signed, entitled and dated on the back. It will be safely shipped in a sturdy cardboard box together with a certificate of authenticity. Thank you for taking an interest in my artwork. Regards, Nafeti

Nafeti /nʌfe'ti/ is a visual artist based in Toronto, Canada. With her art she explores the concept of freedom and moving away from outdated rules, frames and limitations. Her interest in visual art emerged in childhood, although for the longest time she never seriously engaged with art. Instead, she explored law and economics as more “down to earth” subjects. But the creative spark was still there, waiting to be discovered. Initially, Nafeti turned to photography. A year photography course and a 10-year photography practice gave her a strong background in composition, light and color, but she always felt that she wanted more freedom in creating art and expressing herself. In 2016-2018 she studied at fine art school, which helped her to develop her own painting style and form thematic preferences. With that new background, the process of art work creation started to flow easily and naturally. Nafeti’s preferred medium is oil due to its color depth and saturation, wide color palette and flexibility. She works mainly in expressionist style, which allows to convey emotions in the most transparent way with the help of color, texture and composition. She draws her inspiration from nature with its inexhaustible beauty and diversity. Along with that she is deeply concerned about people’s irresponsible use of the biosphere. She translates all these emotions and concerns to viewers through her paintings, be it a still life with a modest daisy bouquet, an abstract work depicting wild fire in Australian woods or a Salvador Dali portrait. Nafeti has successfully participated in a number of art contests and exhibitions and been featured in media, her paintings are presented in art collections in Canada and the USA. During all these times, Nafeti does not forget about her other passion - writing poems for kids. A number of her books for kids have already been published on paper and the internet, including such books as “From Three to Thirteen”, "Alphabet Book", "Little Stories", Animal Stories", "Sea Stories" and "Granny's Calendar", for which she had written 200 poems and drawn more than 150 graphic illustrations. Nafeti hopes her arts bring more positivity into this complicated world. The artist is featured by Saatchi Art in a collection.
