Stories and Colors Out of Africa

U. Crosby has an inept and unique ability to create mosaic art work in acrylic paint with vivid colors of patterns, shapes, and designs that permeate an essence of pride and heritage. He uses one of the oldest forms of ornamentation that creates a keen sense of alertness that evokes emotions of love, laughter, happiness and unity within his African culture of Nigeria throughout the art pieces.
