“These are two different paintings with different ideas.
I do my paintings in the African way. They relate to African culture.
The title of the first hexagon in 2008 was Happy Family.
This one, titled the “Joined Heads,” also has its own ideas and explanation.
The blue and other colours indicate different ideas. The heads are not looking happy because they are thinking of something. What I was trying to say in this painting is, with only one head the idea will not be the best and might be wrong. But with additional heads joined together, the ideas will improve and will be much better than the one head idea.
I had this experience when I was in high school. I was good in Mathematics but at times I will solve a problem and will not still come out with the solution .
when I take it to my friends we will call for other friends and together we will come out with a better solution.
So this painting is talking with two or more heads joined together. The idea is better and can lead to a better solution which is going to help others
why not the World?”
