Artists’ statement

My current work continues the investigation of isolation of consumer society; depict themes of isolation, alienation and pressure on the society yet on the individuals leads to depression. I always try to depict activities that are happening around Africans and yet being ignored or never been taken into consideration, including the hidden lifestyle of those unrecognized amongst the society. I created conceptual works that expose raw life styles of our generation in the institutions and the public, using verity of mediums that I can get my hands on.
My work during the past 5 yeas, which have a profound impact on our contemporary culture today and the viewers has increasingly enlightened due to our social and contemporary meltdown, I find myself overcoming some obstacles relating to our infrastructure due to my research and art. In my varied and diverse approaches to making art; installations; 2 dimensions, 3 dimensions, projects, the context of the work has an impact on the work’s relationship to the viewer.
