Painting of a woman on a blue stool in a bright, rainbox shirt, in front of a red wall with bubbles floating

I love these arresting images with the playful bubbles floating throughout. This is from their “Artist’s Statement” page:

My art is an expression of figurative images using charcoal and colors to give it a contemporary look. It talks about situations in African society. The skin is an essential thing. I love to create it by focusing on such details as contrast. The dark hue of the skin is usually accompanied with vibrant colors for that complementary yinyang color contrast. I then sum up the work with bubbles – this captures the temporariness of the pressures we face.
