I am a contemporary fine artist with strong skills in painting, sculpture, drawing, novel writing and music (instruments).
My art works are produced with a purpose of; beatifying and preserving environment, creating solutions to the community basic needs, communicating to the community through cultural themes, portraits and to earn a living. These are all done under my personal philosophy which states: �New Look at art, sensitized art culture and a positive artistic life�.
My work is important to the community due to its strong attachments to the natives. For example, my sculpture pieces with 90% garbage recycled material and some with relevant functions. This helps them to explore new artistic ventures of solid waste management hence improving on their sanitation.
Most of my paintings, sculptures and drawings are pro-culture. They possess compositions which are comprised of various subject matters derived from different cultures and environment. These compositions represent a call for unity, freedom and working together for a better development. This is depicted from the beautiful compositions of music and other traditional props, fish and animals with a mature message that promotes patriotism in the community.
Therefore, my art works are pro-community.
