Artist Statement

“The images I produce partially relate to what happened in my country with regards to the war: the killings and looting of precious minerals from Congo. At the same time, I endeavor to make work that is more of a universal commentary balancing it with the influence of my origin. Where I come from, it is hot. Therefore, through the use of warm colours, you can see that I have not forgotten the land I come from. I try to be constantly aware and conscious of the current social and political circumstances, while not forgetting the socio-political influences of the past. Using what’s happening around me as stimuli, creates a sense of emotional drive and connection both personally and conceptually. If there is a canvas in front of me, I just start working. I usually start with the background and then proceed to sketch. I prefer for the process to happen naturally and intuitively. I don’t like working towards a set idea, as that limits me.”
