So many wonderful things happen when positive minded people are asleep. Transformations happen in the dream world, battles are won, supernatural and extraordinary things occur which later translates into our physical experiences directly or indirectly.
Babies are believers and miracle workers because of their natural faith in the endless possibilities.
This painting was inspired by the artist’s sleeping four months old little baby boy which got him wondering what happens in the spirit realms when babies are asleep. It must be magical!
Jesse Josh Goje is a highly skilled visual artist whose passion for the ancient Nok civilization and black heritage is evident in his figurative paintings. His innovative use of the impasto technique, which involves mixing plaster of Paris powder with glue and acrylic/emulsion, creates a textured surface that pays homage to the rough surfaces of the original ancient Nok terracotta sculptures.
Jesse draws inspiration from his ancestry and heritage, specifically the Nok civilization, and receives signals through visions and internal vibrations. He sees himself as a bridge between the past, present, and future of the Nok civilization.
Through his art, Jesse aims to showcase the strength and beauty of the ancient Nok civilization, which is often overlooked and forgotten. He is determined to bring attention to the unique expressions, styles, and fashion of this civilization and emphasize its continuity in modern times. Jesse's work is a testament to his passion for preserving and celebrating black heritage.
