An an emerging artist, I often ask myself: What is my voice? Who am I as an artist? What does success mean to me? This last one, I think, I finally answered for myself. It happened when Mama Africa found its new home.
I don’t know how it works for other artists, but I go through phases. They can be short or long, inspired by major ideas or little things. This summer, I was binge-listening to Trevor Noah while working in my studio.
Join me at the studio and watch me paint a portrait of the Indian god Shiva based on the photo of my yoga teacher. In this video, I want to show you how I painted Shiva using a palette knife.
