I have been following George for a number of years now. I have also purchased 3 pieces of his art. I simply love the passion he puts into everything he does. He uses vibrant and bold colours that reflect the beauty and heartbeat of Africa. His work is diverse and it seems there is no challenge too difficult for him to take on board. I follow him with happy expectations and am never disappointed. Well worth investigating not this brilliant man's talent.

George is talented artist with a unique technique of using different media using items such as toothbrushes, pallet knives and even his hands to get the desired textured and looks. He is always joyful and always trying out new things and trying to expand his views. He's a cool guy

Artist Statement 

His artistic transition evolved as he found himself enclosed in a contemporary spectrum which influences and inspires most of his works. He is mainly inspired by contemporary unfolding around him , It encompasses  politics, economic , religious environment and anything that involves cosmopolitan philosophy surrounding him ; He is a provocative artist that believes on art that sparks dialogue.

The approach of his work is a philosophical one , that uses a variety of simple objects that people can relate to; such as keys , playing cards, newspapers, and any other objects he wishes to use; these objects are given symbolism. Using these objects he creates a narrative that can fit to the concept of every story that he is addressing. Every concept that he develops is a researched interactive subject that evoke dialogues. For instance newspapers document our day to day lives thus using them in his work is more like sharing our own stories as the society with the world at large; in turn creating art works that preserve history. As a painter George likes to introduce these objects to find a narrative that blends with the body of his work .
