I look at life as journey with no end; they are several obstacles, detours, stop signs, roads, and doors. The ways in which we approach this travel, works purely on human instinct and principle. Your principle may be based on spirituality, survival, may be based on pleasure, but whatever the case you have to make an informed decision to go forward: to survive. “DO NOT ENTER” used here does not at all mean, stop your journey, it means accept your human right, be informed about your worth and explore opportunities, that are available, and ones you must avail to yourself. I have projected both the visible and the invisible faces surrounding the topic, in Kenya. The story being told in this particular painting is a human society craving to step into change. The door symbolizes an entry into life’s journey. What is behind the door is always subject to question. In life’s path they shall always be many doors, we don’t have to go through all of them; our people need to know that sometimes you can crack opened a window, or just scream on top of the roof. It is a matter of promoting self-confidence, building awareness around self-worth, and establishing a sense of respect and social belonging. The colors used to outline the feeling of the painting are subtle, and simple.
