About "Dark Summer"
I think my work is very colorful, ethic and it is people based (most of the work, and that is what I want to do. Currently, I am more focus on the Zulus which make my theme unique, it is about what they wear and how they use their color). What I try to do with my work is to modernize the Zulu culture into my paintings. My work is about culture, is about the people living in South Africa. It is about there style and how to improve on it. My goal is to pull constancy of certain characteristics of my work. The work must always relate to each other. My ideas came directly from the ethnic styles and use of the Zulu culture/tribe. It is also about the complexity of the different tribes and people in South Africa, which I will later give attention to. I will also look to combine unique characteristics of them in my work, and them make it my own style. Short of trying to create a new art for the tribes, to extend their possibilities by using their creativity. Types of accessories are also been used to show what the culture liked and what they wear.
My work focus on abstract and modern art. I focus on real decorative art similar which can be used on fabrics, textiles were my favorite subject when I studied.
My work is very lavish and outlandish and not minimal. However, some of the coracles, acrylics and pencil sketches are somehow minimalist which accompanied each painting as part of my recording. I need to create my own unique paintings with my style that reflect my personality which
give an identity to my own "brand" and helps to differentiate it from the crowd. I am very strict to give quality work, to make sure that I use the materials, sprays, canvasses as required. It is very important to me to go through the instructions of how to use the materials so that it can live very long. My focus is not to become a commercial African life Sketcher but to look more to the artistic side of it.
