What do you aim to say by the themes in your art?

Global growth stems from individual growth and desires. This can be achieved when we draw from the sublime world that's not affected by ethereal. 

Where does your inspiration come from?

My inspiration stems from my childhood experience and social-cultural issue in my environment.

Do you have any experiences that have impacted your art?


Yes! Visiting a professional artist Studio and having to hear him talk about his works and the impact of the work in the space it occupied has been a great motivation for me. Indeed, when you shine your light you give other people permission to do so too. I hope to inspire the younger generation with my art too. 

Do you feel your art challenges existing barriers?

Yes, the social-cultural barriers created by the system to stereotype people of color has been one of the barriers my works are breaking. 

 What are your long-term artistic goals?

To have my works in major museums and galleries in the world. 

To build an art center that foster and development young contemporary artist to mastery. 

 What advice do you have for aspiring artists?


The world is now paying more attention to artists now. It's the best time to be an artist. Now is the right time to stay true to your art (heART), find your voice, and tell your own story. The world is listening.
