When I began the "African Dreams" series, it was like opening a door to a part of me that had always been there, waiting to be explored. "African Dreams 3" isn't just another painting in the collection; it's a continuation of that exploration, a deeper dive into my connection with Africa.
Though I wasn't born in Sierra Leone, my father's roots have always been a part of me. Living in Sierra Leone, reconnecting with family, and understanding the land's rhythm and pulse gave me a perspective that's hard to put into words. It's a mix of pride, love, and a burning desire to showcase Africa's untapped potential.
The iridescent hues of gold, bronze, silver, and pearl in the painting? They symbolize Africa's abundant resources. And those matte black lines? They represent the challenges, the remnants of a colonial past. But more than anything, this painting is about hope and resilience.
Every geometric pattern, every shade, is a piece of a story that started with the first "African Dreams" painting. It's a story I'm eager to share with you, one that speaks of reconnection, understanding, and a vision for Africa's future.
