How did this start?
I really don't feel like writing an essay so I'll keep this short and simple.
I grew up always looking at pictures by Jide Alakija (Alakija Studios), Joshua Dwain, & Apresh Chavda. My life goal is to become just like or even greater than them. They have impeccable talent.
I started off like every growing artist doing things for free but, I gotten to a point where I started getting paid for my works. I know it's not much but I was able to put together a growing business and a wonderful team. At first, I used to be shy to stand in front of people but time changed who I was. Long story short , step out of your comfort zone and push yourself to accomplish your dreams. Any dream is possible as long as you have Faith and Prayers!!! - (Andrew aka Nhyira Kwabena)
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be your - Mark 11:24
How did this start?
I am performer that is constantly evolving through dance and photography. My art is a representation of my spiritual growth, that I want others to experience. It is the transmission of emotions between the audience and dancer, without touch. Praise dance has been heavily instilled in me and I am a vessel that strives to push the boundaries of what it means to Praise dance. Dance is my backbone and it is so delicately intertwined with my body, that we become one. Dance has shaped me into the effervescent person I am today and constantly gives me new perspectives on myself. I challenge my art to also shift viewers perspectives, make them reflect on how they interpret dance, and the meaning of a photograph.
Photography is my surprise child, a newfound love that I instantly connected to. I pride in capturing the personalities of my subjects and providing them with a reflection that is adequate to who they are. In essence, capturing their spirit. Dance prepared me to embark on this photography quest through showing me art is about challenging perspectives. My perspective I offer to the world is spirit. There is nothing that influences me more than my own spirit.
