Description

ARTIST STATEMENT

Identity is a major theme in my work and, I believe is a way we as humans express ourselves, factors and conditions that an individual is born with, such as ethnicity, sexuality, race, gender, and even the physical composition of the body. However, aspects of our identities are never fixed, and peoples experiences can alter how they see themselves or are perceived by other individuals, this shift or change in cultural perception has been mainly as a result of facets of globalization, my work connotes skin color, indigenous patterns and a way of life that can be identified by a social group of people. I am known to paint portraits and the figurative identifying these factors of identity and capturing social everyday life sometimes in domesticated environments or spatial spaces. I would say the World has been influenced by cultural globalization, through, travel, technology and media, no culture I would say is totally original anymore, the world has become smaller and a diffusion of cultures has been overtly evident from music, to food and fashion, I am influenced by contemporary situations which are mostly universal and certain symbolic materials and iconography in my paintings show this.
