Afrika Series 1

The earthy greens, the vibrant golds, the subtle but powerful red marks encompass some of symbolic values I place when I think of my heritage. There’s an earthy and dynamic decadence (not only materialistically but historically and creatively) when these colours and compositions come together.

Know Your Riches, 2016

2016-10-02-15-44-56-copy

Know your riches is the first part of my ‘Africa Series I’ collection of paintings I created to show the power, riches, history and beauty of all things that the continent represents.

The red brush strokes have been place around the symbolic continent, in outer space of the area. There’s a deep underlying current of power that permeates through the painting. Power, here conveying strength and a dynamic essence.

The gold strokes in the centre resemble the landscape of Africa, including the Sahara desert, mountains and rivers.

Behold Your Riches, 2016

2016-10-02-15-38-22-copy

Behold your riches is the second part of my ‘Afrika Series I’ collection of paintings I created to show the power, riches, history and beauty of all things that the continent represents.

The side profile of the female figure, encrowned with her headscarf and integrity conveys elegance and a quiet pride. She is also looking in the eastern direction towards Ethiopia, the birthplace of civilisation.

Give Your Riches, 2016

2016-10-02-15-42-53-copy

Give your riches is the third part of my ‘Afrika Series 1’ collection of paintings I created to show the power, riches, history and beauty of all things that the continent represents.

The red dots have been place around the symbolic continent. This creates a communal, dynamic circle that radiates from centre. It acts almost like a force-field radiating to the rest of the space – giving the riches.

The thick gold strokes in the centre resemble the landscape of Africa, including the Sahara desert, mountains and rivers.

£14.00 GBP
