Mphira(sling shot ) is a realistic charcoal drawing .its inspired much by my upbringing.i spent much of my spare time as a young boy hunting down birds for food.This work is a depiction of a typical young African boy in the moment of absolute focus and silence before taking a decisive shot.
In my pencil drawings, I explore the profound essence of calmness, silence, and space. Utilizing charcoal pencils as my medium, I seek to capture the serenity found in the quiet moments of life. Through delicate lines and subtle shading, I invite viewers to immerse themselves in the tranquil worlds I create on paper. Each stroke is a whisper, each shadow a sigh, inviting contemplation and reflection.
