THE LIZARD “The world is very peaceful, this wall is the safest place to take a nap, I used to get stoned by African kids and sometimes not allowed in most homes, but today i declare a very peaceful and safe world that i can even take a nap on the walls of everyone. As i was enojoying this peaceful nap, feeling the breeze of the winds I peeped for a second and saw this young man with a camera, at first i wanted to run but then i said to myself, 'he is just admiring me' so i stood and gave him a pose for him to take.” Shot by me in Ghana 2016

This is a special post because it's to highlight and support a friend of mine, and a fellow talented graphic artist, Chineze Michelle Okpalaoka (you'll find her on both Instagram and Twitter at @chinezexo). We first met at the #ColumbusArtsFestival earlier this year, and I was struck by her brilliant artwork from the minute I first saw it displayed on her booth, some of which I just bought from her website,, and took these photos of once they arrived at my door.

Chineze is a self-taught artist who has been painting only since 2015, so it's impressed me how far her talent has blossomed in just the past few years. What I find additionally impressive is what she plans to use her art for, as stated in one of her quotes: “I’ve always been fascinated by art's ability to prompt dialogue, create connection, evoke memories, and inspire hope. Art gives me the opportunity to speak, and use words when necessary.” As artists, I hope that we can have an open exchange of ideas about how we can reach out to more people to not only expand our businesses and brands, but also to make big positive impacts in communities where they are needed. I believe we share core interests in our faith in Lord Jesus, in helping out the oppressed in society, and in calling for change for the sake of reforming others' lives. So Chineze, thanks for mailing me these, and hope to meet you again soon! 😊✊👊 #BlackLivesMatter #ArtistLivesMatter #ArtistsUnited

Like the performing arts, visual art is beautiful not only aestethcially but in terms of what it does for both the creator and the viewer. Because of its cathartic and purgative nature, it allows our limited human bodies to express things we wouldn’t be able to through language alone. This piece reminds me of the love light we have inside us. Our being is dripping perfection and beaming love. Daylight, nighttime, rain, or outside force can ever change this. No amount of covering those holes would affect the inner light/stream, either. We are inherently independent of anything that happens “to” us. Infinitely maintaining a perfect, whole state. #essentialhumans #loveyourself #puttingthehumanbackinhumanity #feelbetterbebetter #columbusartsfestival #columbusartsfestival2016 #sculpture #modernart #waterfall
