We all have guardians in our lives, and Emmanuel Ignatius beautifully brings our African Guardian to life in this digital artwork. A perfect juxtaposition of the real with the imaginary, the contemporary surrealism of the piece allows one’s imagination to flow. As Ignatius notes, “The night has eyes and the forest has ears.” Incorporating a traditionally dressed Maasai warrior into a surrealist atmosphere, and the urban streets, the piece questions the concept of guardians from ancient to modern times. The Maasai in the forefront of the artwork is traditionally adorned, as Ignatius continues to pay homage to his heritage and ancestors in his digital illustrations. The compelling imagery beautifully illustrates the differences in the world as well as our imagination. The artwork combines spiritual and physical guardians as the skilled hunter and warrior is highlighted in the foreground. Guardian is a captivating piece with bold and vibrant colors that needs to be in large print to appreciate its full beauty.
