Title:
African Astronaut

Author:
Timothy Ochola

Description:
The 'African Astronaut' artwork symbolizes the power and importance of a strong vision merged with a specific dream. The African child has been faced with myriads of challenges which blind him/her from seeing a bright and successful future. Nonetheless ,the piece challenges the norm and motivates members of the society to think of themselves highly and differently in the current world. This is aimed at pushing the local people albeit through utopic imagery, to believe that they can make a change in their corruption laden, disease struck and underdeveloped demographies. Art is an effective tool in unifying different ideologies through its ability to identify different aspects of a problem. This in turn helps the society as a unit to see the essence of sustainable greening in the current concrete world.
