...is the greatest Artist, we are all creation and creators, where beauty and harmony flows filling emptyness...
Peter Olwasa was born in southern Sudan in 1975 and immigrated to South Africa at the age of 16. Today he is married, has 4 children and lives with them in Namibia, offering them the life he never had in his childhood. The artist Peter Olwasa says of himself that at a young age he never had the chance to live his life like a child and neither had access to education - all because of the instability of his home country. Nevertheless, he found painting and started doing it at the age of 12 and has already sold works. Today he can live from his art and his great paintings became very popular.
In his artworks, the autodidactic artist Peter Olwasa processes many memories, impressions and emotions, but also all small, inconspicuous, everyday beauties such as the people on the market and dances at folk festivals. In his acrylic paintings, primarily women are represented figuratively, because the artist particularly loves to paint them. He would like to capture their special aesthetics and strength and thereby also include an intensive examination and representation of the African tradition and culture. The African culture is very important to Peter and therefore he celebrates it in his paintings with bright colors, patterns and traditional garments.
As an artist with years of experience, Peter Olwasa has already been able to sell some artworks, but in his collaboration with CheetahCraft worldart it is for the first time possible for him to gain popularity at the international art market and make his wonderful paintings accessible to the whole world.
I draw my artworks on the basis of real, everyday experiences. African women are the focus of my inspiration and reflect the immeasurable strength that it demands of them to take care of their families. The beauty that they give, their beautiful colors and their grace flow out of them and let them dance, dress, cultivate, give life to children - give them a beautiful life.
What I miss, or what I long for the most, I bring to life in my paintings, because colors can heal. The painting-process becomes therapy for me, but it is also my greatest passion and purpose.
