[3rd Place] Connecting art to the heart and soul

Updated: Oct 18, 2023

Artist: Marcellas Njonji

Age: 23 Country: Cameroon

It’s all about connecting art to the heart and soul. My goal is to use my drawings to create awareness and to examine the bad habits youths cultivate in the society. The trauma of phone and social media addiction, drug and alcohol abuse, peer pressure, depression and a means for them to recover afterwards. I use my works to simplify these experiences in a way that individuals relate to them, having a one on one conversation with the artwork, there’s a moment of self examination, creating change.
