This Raffle Ended on September 08, 2017
Africa! One of the aims of Shiri Achu’s Art is to showcase the culture of Cameroon and other African countries worldwide. It’s also to bring back the fond memories to those in the diaspora. She finds beauty in the woman carrying her child on her back and going her way, She finds beauty in the old lady making ‘achu’ in her dark outdoor kitchen for her family. There is a beautiful simplicity in the African culture she is trying to project into the western world. She paints them to educate whilst trying to draw their deep interest, fascination, inquisitiveness of the culture so as to one day plan to visit and see for themselves. Shiri Achu aims to travel within Africa to further explore, expose, and make recognizable, the various cultures within Africa through art.
