"Underlying humanity’s diversity in skin colour, culture, language and religion, we are all citizens of the world. I want my art to communicate non-verbally that We Are One; and, to foster a desire to understand each other, to know, to learn, to experience with an open heart.
I created non-verbal, universal symbols to communicate to all people, to enable the viewer to understand and interpret each symbol for themselves, in their own unique way – a non-verbal language accessible to all.
Through my universal language of symbols, my aim is to interact and communicate with all people of different worlds, to stir curiosity, encourage deeper investigation into our connectedness. I want people to look, to see, to discover for themselves, to communicate and feel joy towards one another. I paint eyes, another form of non-verbal communication, to symbolize the window to the soul that reflects universal depth and beauty on the inside. (By covering our faces during the pandemic, the eyes played a more significant role in our non- verbal communication.)"
In Ghislain Brown-Kossi’s latest series, titled Artifact II, the artist pushes the boundary of his earlier exploration of a juxtaposing concept: the archaeological pop artist.
