I painted this from an old black and white picture of my husband, taken in 1983 St Petersburg, Russia. A picture of the saddest little boy I had ever seen. It reminded me of the crying boy painting I grew up with.
Painted on linen canvas. Framed in black floater frame. Ready to hang.
My name is afekwo . I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I’m a self-taught contemporary artist born in Lagos, Nigeria and currently live in Bridgewater, New Jersey with my family. I am influenced by impressionism and abstract art, I admire bold colors used in both art movements. Color with its interesting combinations inspires me to create. I am a realist painter, and tend to draw from my immediate environment. I work mostly with oil and continue to experiment with different mediums and styles. My work is included in private collections. Member; The Center for Contemporary Art, Bedminster, New Jersey
