As the concept hits the mind sketch it out don’t wait for long, it might disappear like the wind. Put it down as it is fresh,whether it make sense or not just put it down, a time will come when you will make good use of it.
Explore the mind, tap into the Subconsciousness. The mind is like an elastic being, it can expound to any extend you want it to, there is no limit. i see concept or idea as an unborn child, give birth to it, nurture and nourish it to adult hood.
Pay less attention to critics, obstacles mistakes and failures, they structure your concept to grow like a perfect being. Don’t give up keep doing your thing, you are almost there just a little push.
This is another art piece that Colourfully Express the Flamenco Guitar in an African concept. I actually put in this art work for a Spanish art competition organized by the Nigeria Spanish Embassy, with a title “Sharing a common heritage“.
I try to paint one of the Spanish heritage in an African Hereditary Concept of it’s Ancestral and Decorative Art of Symbols,Patterns and Motifs Designing. The Spanish Guitar or Flamenco Guitar which is similar to the classical guitar used in toque, the guitar playing is part of The Art of Flamenco which is their heritage.
The Acrylic art piece was selected in the first stage, final selection for the first position is coming up in the month of October. I am hopeful and positive for the best.

This art piece is titled- The Wine Bottle,Flowers and Apple. Medium- Acrylic,Newspaper,Canvas. Year-2012.
An artist spend donkey years trying to define his/herself or search for his/her own style or techniques. A style that would express the unique mind of the artist in toto. When i created this art piece i felt like am getting closer to what i really want to express as my style. But am still working to unlock what i think and feel about art.
As an Artist i have always imagine or picture my art as a work to be full with freedom, complexity/deep but simple, colourful, with a dramatic effect and a strong message. I am still experimenting to achieve all this qualities.
Title: The African Flamenco Guitar Medium: Acrylic on a Textured Canvass by Wood Dust. Size: 61cm/50cm Year: 2012.
Painting the Spanish Flamenco Guitar with an African Cultural Concept of Idealistic African Patterns, Motifs and symbols. I imagine Striking the Strings of a Spanish Guitar, all i could hear is an African Cultural and Traditional Sound.
It’s kind of strange but is possible. The sound would be strange, unique and beautiful. Hmm, i wish i could experience it, however it’s my imagination.
