Meet The Artist.
Artwork Shared: Life Is You.
My name is Denis Cheruiyot, I create contemporary art to portray and express the true raw human nature. I currently work from home and sell my work online or through referrals. I have always been interested in the creative field, and also include the potent talent of drawing. It became a life purpose at the end of 2019. This was also the onset of the pandemic, so with the lockdown, I found myself in an existential crisis. Nothing to do, don’t know where my life was heading, and a lot of expectations. But at the end of it all, I just found myself grabbing a book and a pencil and then letting my creativity happen. It was the only thing that made sense with all the chaos happening worldwide. Besides that, I have yet to achieve awards or attend an exhibition.
I am driven by the desire to portray a deeper and subtle meaning of experiences in life. It’s more strongly expressed through cultures and things that modern society would consider to be “Backward”. Even though it is a part of us. It’s like an imprint of us that we suppress for the sake of being “Normal”. I also express it through animals, especially lions and elephants. They always seem to exude a powerful and peaceful aura and free expression. They embrace their true self. Human beings are considered intelligent life forms and at the top of the hierarchy. But we fail to truly find and know who we are.
