I paint the face or mask of my imagination on cloth, I have not being able to paint the whole of my imagination, I paint the parts & areas I am able to see & understand for the now. I don’t try to force it out, I just allow it to flow out naturally. Time and space will unveil them.
An artist/artiste cannot be able to uncover all his imagination because they are endless and bigger than him. He fights to understand how to express them all, he does his own part and lay the foundation or path way for generations to carry on.
A genuine work of art from the soul- either in literal, visual or auditory form created is not only done for the present but for the future. Your environment or generations may not understand what you are expressing. But the future knows that you are a gate way to generations, to revolutionalize the arts. A genuine work of art lives forever, it never dies, it inspires the future.
Never stop inventing, exploring, experimenting new ways to express your own art through the view point of your mind. No matter what you are going through just keep doing your thing. Head in Series IV the title of the above work of art.
Title: Head in Series II. Size: 2ftx2ft.
Write, analyze the colours, the style or techniques, the compositional elements of designing a piece of art it’s not my basic interest to explore. But the imaginative feeling, the motivational spirit & force behind the creative aesthetic piece. It’s a magical feeling & force that cannot be express literally but visually.
“The modern artist…….is working & expressing an inner world- in other words- expressing the energy, the motion & other inner forces” Jackson Pollock.

The advent or conception of every design in the mind put a smile inside of me, as it metamorphosize into a defined picture waiting to be printed out from my mind. So I go about with this smile & joy inside of me in respective of short comings & limitations. With the knowing that something beautiful is about to be born- my brain child.

Being talented is inborn, being passionate about your talent or abilities is a decision. Developing, stretching your talent till it expound beyond normalcy it’s a concrete and life time decision which you have to contend and uphold with patience, consistency and dynamism.
For one to resolve to be and live as an artist is problematic. He wrestles with mental and physical issues like- acceptance, rejection, funding, originality, meeting basic needs……… Many artist give up and loss faith as they contend with the issues of being and living an artist.
I believe in the capability of passion, the inner feelings of satisfaction amidst forces that contend with being an artist, it fuels the inner strength. In all i take solace in the endowed portfolio of finished ,and unfinished paintings in my mind. I mentally visualize them hoping to bring them to my reality.
The above Mixed-media Abstract Piece is one of my reality from the mind’s portfolio. What you see, feel or imagine in the painting is your own title and definition.
