If you have had the opportunity to witness Wall of Courage and experience an overwhelmingly profound sensation - perhaps open heartedness, gratitude, love, empathy, inspiration, or all of these at once! - then you will know the feelings that I feel every time I think about these children on the Wall. It has taken me a long time to be able to come around to a place where I feel I am able to "let these little birds fly out of their nest". I can do this now because I know the children are in a good place. Their basic needs have been fulfilled, they have community and live mostly happy lives now. They are the 'veterans' who come to the aid of the younger orphans and welcome them into the Tchukudu Kid Family. I know now they will be alright, so I am ok to loosen my grip and share them with others who will love them as I do.
You can have the privilege of owning any of the available paintings below.
In 2020 Wall of Courage was solicited to the prestigious UTA Artist Space in Beverly Hills, to anchor the Human Element of "Emergency on Planet Earth: In A Time Close To Now", curated by UTA Artistic Director, Arthur Lewis.
