  1. Hello i am an up and coming independent musician based in Los Angles Cali. I love you art work and I want to know if I could use one of the paintings for an album cover. It will not be sold. I want to reflect a cultural vision on the album art work. Ive looked into a few other painters/artist, however i feel like culturally you have not only what Im looking for, but also what ppl need to see. Alot of us out here are not familiar with afircan painters, that needs to change. feel free to email me anytime. Findrealmusic.com
