A painting of a mother and her child, representing the idea I have for the relationship between Africa and the rest of the world. Inspired by K'naan's song, Waving Flag.
This piece is also my first attempt at an artistic style called syncretism.
Syncretism is the amalgamation of different beliefs, while blending practices of various schools of thought... by definition. In this case, I'm trying to blend styles and techniques to present an idea as a whole. A contemporary art style inspired by artist Cesar Santos.
Mama Africa is an oil painting as well as a charcoal drawing on a stretched 16 by 20 inch canvas
