An Ethiopian Woman Living With Wild Animals
Starting his adventure in the place where he grew up Johannesburg in September of a year ago, Reggie has been making the long and dusty trek northwards, at last advancing into Ethiopia 3 weeks back on his BMW F650 GS.
Reggie conveys painting hardware on his adventure and makes pieces en route as he camps or remains in lodgings and hotels. He is been visiting essential and auxiliary schools just as craftsman networks, gathering stories that rouse his works of art.
He portrays his depictions as remarking on shameful acts in African social orders. "I paint about race, about ladies, you see them conveying stuff, they are the ones on the ground more often than not. In any case, we are equivalent. I inquire as to whether a genderless world is conceivable."
His acrylic artistic creations are loaded up with splash painted words and expressions that request consideration. The vigorously loaded sketches are loaded up with layers of data reporting racial, monetary, gendered and other social shameful acts. He references period charge, dark expense and what it could intend to be post-racial. 'Where are the young ladies?' is in reference to the hijacking of young ladies by Boko Haram in Nigeria. 'Actions speak louder than words, practitioners ladies are not many', says another.
"These are significant issues. Somebody needs to discuss them. When I'm outside of Africa I will discuss the positives of Africa yet inside Africa, I will discuss the negatives with the goal that we can address them. We need to feature that being an African is great. We need to bring back pride in ourselves. Africa can stand its ground. We don't require outside assistance. We have been acculturated. Also, we enlightened them as well. "
