About

As a visual artist, I am driven to create a unique visual multiverse. A Fusion of elements from a range of artistic styles, such as surrealism, Pop Art, Italian Futurist, and Afro-Futurist; the visual images I create are colourful, spiritual, and embedded with surrealist undertones. Using my photography as an outlet of political expression, I explore a range of socio-political issues within my work, such as race, gender, the fnding or creating of moments, and the pursuing and discovering of harmony and balance. My Oeuvre combines elements from my academic, personal and professional background in Mathematics, Art History, creative installations, and costumes design. Normally, I make my pieces into prints on various materials that can be seen in doors and on the street. From acetate that are back lit in windows to massive prints wheat paste to walls. Te prints are mostly portraits of people interacting in various spaces.
