Pixel Heller: “This is my symbol. I’m not an artist. I’m an explorer. Art just happens to be my medium for discovery and empowerment. When I created these masks in search of my identity, I found my home, interwoven within Caribbean roots. These masks represent protection for my culture and my people.”
21-year-old Steve Williams Jnr, is a Ghanaian creative who has managed to tap into the fullness of his artistry. The intentionality behind his creative expression has made him a storyteller, telling beautiful stories from his own experiences and the stories of others.
