I bodypainted Pink Oculus for her new video Overdue (2:25) which was released recently! If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to check it out! As I naturally support her ..I loved working together with my friend/ex-neighbor and above all fellow Queen! I strongly recommend to follow her and specially try to check her out on stage sometimes because this woman is for real for real!!
Heb je eigelijk wel eens mijn ‘Queens’ gezien?
Ik heb ze al een ruime tijd geleden geschilderd, en veel van mijn bekende zijn bekend met ze en zijn er dol op.
Wellicht ga ik binnenkort er een aantal aan toevoegen..
Er zijn er nog twee, bekijk ze in mijn “Art” section, de link bevind zich onder de header ^.
For the official afterparty of Afrikadag (Africaday), ‘Africa At Night’ I was asked to expose some of my work in the ‘Sugar Factory’ in Amsterdam. Afrikadag is the biggest event in The Netherlands that is about Africa and international collaborations. It is a day full of different kind of performances like music, poetry, dance and lectures that all have the same goal: sharing knowledge and thoughts about Africa.
It was quite short notice that Christian Nana asked me to expose, and I really wanted to show new work here. I already made a portrait of Fela Kuti in 2011 and I was planning to make more portraits of him anyways. So when I only had one month to paint a serie for ‘Africa At Night’, I figured that would be the best thing to do. I made 7 paintings that month, 3 portraits of fela and 4 portraits of some of his queens. The best add I could give to Afrikadag!
It was a good night, friends showed up to support me, my mother was there!, I did some bodypaint on visitors, people where interested in my work (also two men from Lagos! Too bad I hadn’t had the time to decide proper prices for my paintings, or else I would’ve sold some, oh well.. next time! It’s such an amazing feeling to know that people are truly interested), saw several performances (music and comedy), there was african food and overall a really warm and good vibe!
