"ART IS THE FABRIC OF LIFE. A UNIVERSAL THREAD CONNECTING US ALL WHILST SIMULTANEOUSLY HEALING OUR HEART AND SOUL. ART EMPOWERS US TO CREATE A BETTER FUTURE."
I'm a self-taught Artist and Illustrator based in London (England). My heritage is Ghanaian (West Africa). I grew up both in the UK and Ghana, and my visual sensibility and identity is informed by both cultures.
To me, Art is a vehicle for social transformation. It is something that unites us all and can help to bring awareness and solutions to social injustices.
I travel frequently around the world, and it breaks my heart to see the world still struggling with negativity such as racism / sexism / ageism / homophobia /etc.
I feel we all share a collective responsiblity not to turn a blind eye but to instead take a stand towards making a healthy change for the world.
In this regard, I try to use my art as a way of bringing awareness to global and social issues. I also donate 10% of profits from each series to a chosen charity that is out there helping to combat the identified problem.
It's a small step to make, but I believe together as a community we can help bring a positive and healthy change to this world.
I'm not an idealist, I'm just someone who believes that its better to at least try to do something than just sit back and watch. The art I create is simply an expression of this.
I believe you share the same view as me so let's connect. Welcome to the tribe. Let's inform and encourage each other towards bringing healthy changes to this world.
Together, we can fulfill your spark!!!
