Portrait: oil paint and Acrylic on canvas
NKANYAMBA: Africans believe in a mythical creature called I’Nkanyamba, in Biblical mythology, this creature is known as the leviathan. It is said, when it appears to you, it comes in a form of a person you long for. The concept behind this painting was inspired by the story of a man who fell in love with a woman called ….. and like every typical love story, the man didn’t have the courage to approach this woman , therefore in order for him to win her heart, he sought out super natural powers and this lead him to cave where the Nkanyamba lived, upon his approach, he slipped and fell in the running river that lead in to the cave, and as the river viciously pulled him in and out of its merciless flow, it stripped him naked of his clothes and as he is about to lose consciousness, he finds himself slowly submerging and at the mercy of a majestic creature that looked exactly like the love of his life.
