'My recent works are mainly concerned about hybridization and reinterpreting the iconic representations of women of power in Western culture. In my paintings, I transpose Gelede masks from the Yoruba people of West Africa onto classical figures of the Western world.

Gelede is a celebration of women and their sacred powers of childbirth and motherhood. The meanings associated with Gelede masks in Yoruba society are capricious and many but generally, they satirize, parodize, entertain and educate onlookers. In the same vein, my paintings also examine the foibles of imperialistic culture and its attendant shortcomings. '
