About

New works giving the artist's perception of the scope of the current migration challenge and issues of belonging and inclusion, using iconography from Pygmy bark drawings.

Three series of paintings are presented. The "Survivor" series in particular renders homage to the unprecedented number of refugees fleeing across the Mediterranean at the peak of the migration crisis in 2015.

The full proceeds from the sale of  the "Survivor" works will be given to humanitarian NGOs working with these people.
