Àsìkò (The Moment)

“The chief enemy of creativity is good sense” -Pablo Picasso

Àsìkò is a creative art style created by Israel (thekingiszy). This concept draws inspiration from the Chinese concept of yin and yang coined with the Yoruba traditional belief that everything is created in twos. Noah went into the ark with all animals in twos. Each side has its own unique roles like day and night, good and bad, male and female, up and down, life and death, and finally darkness and light.

This style uses this idea, semi-abstract figures, and dynamic African lines and icons to express and tell stories. In this style, there is so much uniqueness embedded in each artwork and used for different themes including European, American, and African-related themes.
