"Kwantunyi" (Traveller)

"‘Kwantunyi is part of an ongoing series which explores inter-African migration. It uses three West African nations as an entry point to discuss important migratory movements, post-independence.

The materiality of the work plays a vital role in discussing identity, the passing of time and the notion of belonging. By integrating portraiture with transfers, prints, and assemblage, my paintings take on different characters, which mirror the life of an expatriate; the expatriate adapts, loses and learns different cultures within the ‘new’ space that is being occupied."
