About The Artwork

The Weight of the World From the series: Whispers from the Shadows #3 Amidst the vibrant streets of Maiduguri, Nigeria, a young girl gracefully carries water bags, each a symbol of her determination and resilience. Meanwhile, in India, a girl who once bore the weight of a heavy stone upon her head now stands adorned with a stack of books, signifying hope and opportunity. These two images epitomise the global issue of child labor, where the burdens of poverty and modern slavery often deprive children of their rightful childhood. In Iran, children labor in waste management, yet the universal truth remains — every child, regardless of their circumstance, deserves a chance at a brighter future, equality, and a childhood free from toil.

Listed in database In recent years, my primary artistic focus has centered on cultivating a fresh and contemporary style. Concurrently, I've been on a journey to identify a theme that can give rise to a distinct artistic voice. This exploration has led to the creation of the 'Portraits of Life' series, inspired by authentic stories. Through my artwork, I aim to illuminate the existence of marginalized individuals, particularly children. I seek to convey the authenticity of their reality while granting them an expressive identity. My ultimate goal is to evoke an emotional response from viewers, allowing them to navigate their own feelings without imposing preconceived notions. Currently residing in France. My artwork can be found in private collections world wide.
