Power of Death -
Many people they seem not to understand the law of attraction how it work which motivate me to produce this pic of artwork which relate to what happen in DRC Congo in the late !9s, also to what happen in South Africa [Xenophobic] 2008. Many people had been killed with people who want to pay the revenge of their beloved which will be a cause to a next person to re-do it again in the future to me this image stand as power of death.
Old man -

In Tanzania is normal for elder's to know the past but on the future [technology such as Computer, Driving are car, using hand set, etc] which made me try to find away to share this with you.
Official Death' 2011 -
I made this in Naivasha, Kenya. During the Wasanii Inter. Workshop that was organized by Kouna Trust.
I believe my prints a an unfinished catalog of fragments: objects, drawings, paintings, photographs, installation and other inventions. They are improvisational sites in which the constructed and the ready-made are used to question the making of the world through language and knowledge. My arrangements are arbitrary, inviting the viewer to move into a space of speculation. I rely on rollers, etching inks and needles and Fabriano or handmade paper or any media that fit into my thought or ideas that will allow to make my creativity flow.
My work thus far has used monoprint, etching and Installation to point to stereotypes of difference, which are hidden in plain sight. The objects I make are placed in the canon of modernist art, in hopes of making visible what is overlooked in the historicizing of the artist. This project has always been grounded in pleasure and aesthetics. My aim as an artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, is moved back into that time and the artwork itself moves again since it is life.
The Kiss'2012 -
Every one have is own way of apriciating the romantic part of their life but mostly began with kiss!
I get inspiration from friends and people around me.
