"My artistic inspiration is considered as an observation and visual representation of the lineage of our community for which my clan and especially my family is the chieftain. To transcribe the daily activities of life. The community has developed characteristic symbols engraved on the utensils used and in the painting on wood. Our family has become, through its social position (chiefdom) in the community, the exclusive guarantor of these symbols and its engraving. Indeed, the symbols in the paintings on wood or utensils of my community express "Human" in relation to the fourth elements of life: water, air, earth and sun, which are represented as "the tree" and also Love, Peace and well-being, of which the community is its visual combination. My artistic inspiration expresses this combination through my works.
