Artist Statement

Art to me is a reflection of who I am, my experiences, my environ and all that hovers around here in my own part of the world. I don’t force myself to describe me, and in my work, I am always the focal point irrespective of the subject I am treating or the situation I am trying to address. And all these are I always portray in a way that everyone in contact with my pieces can understand it, because its art “A universal Language”
