IGBO KWENU!!!, 24" x 15", Mixed Media on Canvas Board, 2008

acrylic Afican child African Influence coloured pencil igbo kwenu markers

This is the second piece I discovered and it celebrates The Igbo child in Finland. I saw a video that inspired this piece. It shows how children who are of Igbo descent in Nigeria are taught to speak their mother tongue even though they are born in a foreign land. I was thrilled because I also speak Yoruba, my mother tongue to Josh and it really helps him to have a sense of belonging.

This was done mainly in acrylic, coloured pencil and black markers on canvas stuck to masonite board.
