In The Company Of Scoffers. Mixed Media on Canvas. _ I always think that painting is an interesting process, what I see in my mind is never what comes out at the end (it comes close), so its a really esoteric, really organic process, this creation. Converting a concept, or an image in the mind (a restless one), an imagination, into a tangible object that can be viewed with the eyes will always be daunting, no matter how many times I do it. _ I have a canvas I've just been staring at that's been laying bare for hours. _ #art#arte#neoexpressionism#painter#neoexpressionismo#neoexpressionisme#kenyanart

Unorthodox Library Sign. Acrylics on Canvas 2 x 2 ft. ^ I play on how quiet I can get sometimes. #art#arte#neoexpressionism#neoexpressionismo#neoexpressionisme ^ Earlier today on Twitter streets, I saw an image of a graph that might have annoyed me, purpoted by whoever posted it, to have been created by a Koch outfit. Apparently, (at least according to the graph) modernism in art reduced it's standards, making art merely, a form personal expression. I figure, art is not a jointed, mechanical object that can be measured, and defined with borders, but complex vision that varies from person to person, which explains why not all African art should and will contain traditional subjects. (savannas, wild animals, huts, traditional objects, etc.) While there are people who do it really well, these subjects aren't the hallmark for what African art should be. ^ Whoever designed the graph probably forgot all the classics were once very, very, contempo-rary.

The Sophisticated Hippie. 2ft by 2ft. Mixed media on canvas. ^ This is the kind of art that comes to life when the weather outside is what @danikaanders would very aptly call "bright, sunny, and people-ley." 😂 ^ ^ My art is pushed ahead by such a strong desire to create, and I'm constantly under pressure from my commitment to being an artist. Of late I've even been eating breakfast standing, and rushing over daily life activities so quickly just so I can get back to making more work. Painting has become such a natural and automatic process, and in painting this particular piece I feel my technique is becoming just as expressive as the outcome, which is a good thing. ^ ^ #growth#arte#art#neoexpressionism#neoexpressionist#neoexpressionismo#transavantgarde#neoexpressionisme#painter

Lion In A Dog Eat Dog World. ^ 2ft by 1ft ^ Acrylics on canvas. ^ Simply an observation of life with inspiration drawn from my last name. Real men wear pink. 😂 And I won't stop holding the sign "There's something wrong with your art if it can be understood by a policeman." 😂😂. This painting was purposely made for fun. #art#arte#contemporaryart#neoexpressionisme#neoexpressionism#neoexpressionist#neoexpressionismo#painter

It's been a good break from social media, but I'm back now, with "Untitled Is Also A Title." 2ft by 2ft. Mixed media on canvas. ^ An observation of the ironic things people say that we somehow let go of. The cage over what looks like a mouth (😂) represents calculated silence. Like the one I've been in for a while now. For such a small painting, The special thing about this one is that it took me almost a whole month just to decide where to add more colour. ^ ^ #art#arte#neoexpressionist#neoexpressionism#neoexpressionismo#neoexpressionisme#painting#painter

Ok. So this happened, and I found it hilarious.... ....But it goes to show how flawed the foundations of our dearly beloved institutions are. "Miseducation leads to misunderstanding." has never been truer. It takes me back to high school when I had tiffs with the administration over "some controversial drawings." Since the very beginning, at a glance, my art doesn't quite conform, and it asks the tough questions, disrupts the norm, makes you feel uncomfortable with the fact that you're uncomfortable about it.... that's not going to change. While I understand criticism sharpens the blade, and naysayers and detractors come in all shapes and sizes, this kind of narrow mindedness is a huge shame, and indicates just how much more needs to happen as we move into more contemporary dimensions. #neoexpressionism#transavantgarde#neoexpressionist#art#arte My rant is over, you may laugh. 😂

About 3 weeks ago, I'm at a nice drinking place just a few minutes out of the city, a middle aged (I think) grey eyed, blonde woman walks up and says...."Hi, I saw you and your work at Kioko Art Gallery, 30 under 30...(This is good validation, at this point I felt like such a celebrity 😂).... I'm" Suzy", the fancy variety with S.I.O.U.X.S.I.E." I say "Hi Siouxsie, nice to meet you, and thanks! You make me feel real famous."... She laughs then says.. "I saw your work, and now I see you drinking here with paint in your hands, and I can't decide whether you drink and paint what you want, or you drink THEN paint what you want." She laughs then walks off "Bye. I'm leaving, see ya." I felt like such a Picasso, until I got home and felt the cut of that double edged statement.... Now, I still don't know whether to be offended or not. 😂

Fan art? No? 😂 OK. 😂 This picture is a constant reminder that I should always look over my shoulder for enemies.😂 It is also a reminder that people will take hard cash to destroy me. 😂😂 Imagine, 25 years from now, I'm running for president and this comes up. I'd have lost. 😂

Took me a really long time to just paint whatever I feel like, completely untainted by trends, and opinions. Man, sometimes I look at my work and think that maybe modern art happened when painters like me stopped looking at girls and convinced themselves they had a better idea. 😂 PC: Yours Truly. #art#arte#neoexpressionism#transavantgarde#neoexpressionismo
