Art is my passion. I create every day, but don't always have the time to write content for all of the platforms and social networks I am on. Only for the moment, I am a one-man team. I create, I share and I find a way to sometimes promote my art. Here is my latest art series.
This is a collection of African mask drawings inspired by African tribal art. African masks are magical and one of the most powerful symbol of ancient African ancestors.
The drawings of the African masks are influenced by some of their shapes as well as various elements that create the powerful ancestral art from Africa. When I created the first four masks I didn't realize how well people would react to them.
It seems that something is magical and captivating with the African mask. There is this sense of mystery almost as if these abstract faces are real. My guess is the fact that it is not a common shape or faces that people sees every day.
There is this deep respect for the African tribal art. I am Haitian and an even in Haiti we have certain art that resembles African culture. Whether these artworks are carved in wood or treated with welded metal they still capture the essence of African roots.
The unfamiliarity of the mask I believe it is one of the key aspect that makes them so well received. Art and its term have evolved tremendously over the years. One simply cannot define art with one word anymore or being one style. Art itself has transitioned and it is more diverse than ever.
