In Tiébélé, Burkina Faso, the houses are done of the ground and are decorated by geometric patterns that do theirs works of art. There the kings of Kassena lived, one of the oldest ethnic groups in West Africa. My inspiration is based on this artists' community. And in its architecture, pattern and in general Africa, with its makeup and jewels. Although I did not decide to use the brilliant colors of Africa, I chose to use more earthy colors as there is in Tiébéle and in dark tones of the skin.
