Papisco Kudzi states, « I paint with acrylic because it dries fast and draws me into a painting process strengthening my concentration, forcing me to constantly make aesthetic decisions. I also incorporate textured paper, wood, wire, and other hardware as they help me describe a world beneath the world. » His collage, heterogeneous colors, painting old scrap and rubbish reveal his inner desert world and change according to the way his eye and spirit react to the paint process.
