About

Better life is a work that shows a beautiful black woman holding a board that has an inscription of "BETTER LIFE". this preaches the ability and potential that measures the outcome of our action based on the decision we make to make ourselves a better version. In Africa, we live by Faith. no one can determine what will happen, and in such belives we have the conviction to survive any difficult situation. whether in search of green pasture or in search of Good life. “There is no easy way out of our circumstances...Sometimes you stick it out even when you want to give up because you know that on the other side is either a better situation or a better you." -Watercrossing Oil, Acrylic, and Fabrics on canvas Ships in a well-protected tube from Nigeria This work is unique, this is not a print or other type of copy. About the Artist --- Roseleen Labazacchy, a true Nigerian born in the year 2000 and based in Ibadan, Oyo state Nigeria. Roseleen holds a National Certificate of Education in Fine Art from Emmanuel Alayande College of Education, Oyo state. She is a mixed media painter. Roseleen was exposed to art from a very young age; Her father being an artist himself enrolled her in the popular Nike Art Gallery at a very young age to learn traditional Adire making, a skill she still practices to date. This was how she started art professionally and she has been getting better at what she does since then. In the just-concluded international art exhibition and competition organized by Talentia Foundation, Roseleen Labazacchy who participated in the competition amidst other international artists came first in the Mix Media category and was presented with a certificate of achievement in recognition of her artistic endeavor. Roseleen uses oil and acrylic with fabrics on canvas to consciously project the African women's dignity and true African beauty. As an African painter, Roseleen hopes to bring about the emancipation of the true African Women image by showcasing true African beauty in her paintings for the world to see. She is inspired by the need to see the dawn of a new and better African society, a society that respects and celebrates the African people, cultures, and ways of life. Roseleen is a full-time artist in the studio of Oluwole Omofemi, a well-known talented artist who has been a great source of inspiration to her. She is also inspired by other notable African artists like Njideka Akunyili Crosby.
