One of the effects of the Congo Civil war meant a lack of electricity. This led to the necessity of oil lanterns. Initially, as a child, I repaired lanterns for the neighborhood as a means of income. As I began developing artistically, I started collecting old oil lanterns, deconstructing, and transforming them into creatures to represent human beings and personal experiences. What started off as a necessity of life became my inspiration and a form of artistic expression for me.
Oil lanterns, Metals, Rim, Beads, Acrylics, Oil paints, and Found Objects.
