ARTIST STATEMENT An Artist life is a futuristic abstraction, colour don’t have to be rigid but anApproach to Culture. It is my feeling that our way of life “Culture” should be generally involved andappreciated for a better societal growth in all part of the region. My Journal through Art: has always been an expressive form towards encouragingindigenous local product and life-style, using my Artistic tools to reflect theAesthetics moment and importance of our culture.I create art simply for people to recognize the importance of their origin andmaking them feel engaged, happy mood, reflective or joyful of their background inrespective of time, place and period. My imaginary sight in life is full ofabundantly wealthy vision gotten from beautiful creation made by God. I alsorealize that; life is short and what we do or contribute determine our future, for ourfuture to be sure we need to preserve, by visualizing and educating it in any form.
