30″ x 48″, 2016

Mixed Media + Limestone (nfs)

“This is inspired by power of simplicity, the texture and grit of the richness of culture, and warrior spirit of Africa.

In this painting there is a warrior. The face is pale to accent the lips. The lips are textured and dry, cracking yet bold. The beard is black as night. The white drips of the paint on top of the dominantly white back drop bring out the eyes and nose of the right side of the face. In the background there is a yellow sunset, there is heat. Beside the lips the colours of flora and fauna are patient and not seeking spotlight. This warrior is pure and powerful, fight is for family and survival, vision is against the sunset and stays focused on protection of the land.
