In the Midst is an art piece that is inspired by my personal life. When i was young my parents got divorced and because of this i was mandated to live with my Aunty but the life was so hard for me then that I had to hawk to survive even though, it was child abuse.
I saw the different side of life through things done by thugs. I was bullied each time I hawked but “IN THE MISDT” of all these circumstances and challenges, I never gave up I rather use the negative situation to build up myself and keep on focusing.
This piece was made to encourage the young people out there not to lose their focus in the midst of any negative situation they find themselves.
