African Voices, a news magazine programme of the Cable News Network (CNN), sponsored by total telecommunications service provider, Globacom, will this week excite viewers with three art enthusiasts who are employing their talents as means of communicating their Africa to the entire world.
Patrick Mukabi from Nairobi, Kenya, will tell viewers how his romance began with his first love, the fine arts. According to the 49-year-old artist, “My entire working process is usually visible to the keen eye. My subject is based on everyday activities especially of women. These are people I meet and see on daily bases”.
Also featuring on the programme is 46-year-old Adiodato Gomes, a self – taught photographer whose works emphasise unlikely subjects in his exhibits. Gomes who also doubles as Production Director of Cultural Events is adept in poetic street photographs which externalise the pure but difficult realities of life.
The third feature simply known as Wise Two deciphers hieroglyphics, ancient cultures and mystical graffiti. He is an internationally acclaimed street and studio-based artist whose artistic exploits are predominantly influenced by a melange of African culture and his Indian heritage.
