Coming up for air...

by ZASHADU Bags


It has been a whirlwind of events and ball busting hard work since the last entry. I got out a bit, attending some fun events but mostly I have been burning the candle at both ends working on a Zashadu collection that is a collaborative effort with another artist, and a dear friend of mine, Bryony Kimmings. This line will debut in the new year, possibly February 2012.

Furthermore, African Artists' Foundation recently hosted the Grand Finale Exhibition of our National Art Competition, giving away cash prizes totaling N4,500,000 (£20,000+) to three deserving winners. Chimamanda Adichie was our special guest of honour to announce the winners; she totally understood the tension that the artists were going through! It was a wonderful way to end the year.

Over the next few weeks, I will immerse myself completely in Zashadu and will have the fruits of my labour for all collectors to enjoy very soon.

Send me positive vibrations in abundance! x
