"Like most of my pieces the place it begins is usually never the end of the story. I start with some form of reference then I build the story as it transforms. I go back and forth subtracting and adding til the painting starts to emerge from that process, build to destroy then build again.
I'm fascinated by how homes can carry so much history and character, they are such a part of who we are and contain so many memories. They become long lasting fixtures in our minds when we think back on those places we have visited or lived in. I put the homes on people's backs, or illustrate them as living things moving throughout the piece, because when I was a boy my father and I were living a life on the run, we moved from place to place, state to state for years. I never got to stay in one place for long, although the memories of other people's homes and the places we visited stayed with me til this day. No matter where you go or how far away you are from were you started you can always carry that feeling of home with you." - Ekundayo
