London, 11/08/2016. Artist Vivian Timothy to receive creative Icon recognition at CA award 2016 for her contributions in promoting African heritage through painting and story telling.
Vivian Timothy is a Nigerian German based self taught artist. In the last few years, her paintings have become a talked about piece in Germany and Europe. Although her love for painting began in her early years, however, she did not pay attention to it until a few years ago when her talent was revived and since then she has not stopped.
Vivian’s paintings are deeply embedded in African roots, and speak with a heavy African accent. She takes inspiration from nature, women, culture and heritage, challenging social injustices and stereotypes.
Her paintings have been showcased at International Kultur Festival in Germany,the US and recently at the UK’s house of parliament.
The highly motivated and talented artist is one of the six outstanding individuals who will be receiving this special recognition at CA award 2016 on 19th November.
“I am highly elated to have been considered eligible to receive this CREATIVE ICON recognition award. This recognition will serve as a stronger motivation for me to strive more into projecting the African values and concept through my creative artworks.” She said.
Emeka Anyanwu , C. Hub magazine publisher said, “painting is a treasure in which a culture is embedded and preserved. It is the easiest way to tell the story of a people from generation to generation and we do not take it lightly. I hope that this will go along way to encourage and motivate Vivian to keep doing what she’s doing knowing that her unique contribution is highly appreciated.”
