Medium: Acrylic on a Textured Canvass(Texture Achieved by Glued Wood Dust to a Canvass)
This is my most recent African painting,for a very long time i have not done a large painting. I love large canvass it give me more room or space to express my African indigenous patterns,symbols,motifs and designs i have inside. I dream of painting larger canvass than this, so that i can really express my African designs and patterns on a large scale like that of Jackson Pollock’s large paintings .
As an artist,artisan,designer or a craft man have you ever done an art or craft and you spent hours or days staring at it as if it was done by another artist. And after series of staring at your work you said to yourself ” I am good,i don’t care whether this art is bought or not. I am good ” That was how i felt when i finished this painting.
I call this art an African colourful design canvass. It is an assemblage of texture,shapes,various faces of an African patterns and motifs at the background and a colourful decorated African dolls which is the center of focus.
In this art piece i exercised my mind in order to explore most of my African imaginative patterns,symbols and motifs which i have inside. It was really fun and experimental.
