“The act of painting has been unexpected for me. Just like the composition of my poetry, it suddenly happened after a period of retreat… Having had no conventional training, it is through the luminous corridor of the Sufi tradition and my Malian~Gabonese cultures that my pens and paint brushes wander in praise of the Beloved. My literary and visual expressions unfold in oneness; they capture states the prostrated soul encounters as it walks out of self in quest and honor of the Divine.”
