Osaka Ghost, 6/15/00. (14 in. x 17 in.)
PORTRAIT (by MILKYEYES - donato sansone)
"For expatriates, straddling multiple cultural identities often presents a challenge. To authenticate my diaspora experience, I accept this space of neither here nor there, as it’s own unique hybrid culture or metaphorical bridge. Living in Nigeria is, in many ways, the missing chapter where all parts of my identity merge to add new dimension to an ongoing exploration of ‘home’. To safely navigate this sensory collision of familiar yet strange, spaces, memories, and cultures, I have invented an alter ego named Ada* the Alien. These drawings are a reflection of her layered experiences; living somewhere between reality and fantasy."
