This painting portrays the less affluent part of the city of Lagos in Nigeria – the filthy canal, the endless sea of slums, etc. A story, that needs to be told.
The “waterside activities” here is Makako, a community that has a lot of stories seeking revelation. Here people live on the margins of society, forgotten and left in despair. This painting is another petition to draw attention to the plight and condition of the people living in this water-logged part of the city.
