Artist Statement:

Warfroism is a tribute to the unsung freedom warriors across the African diaspora. The works showcase individuals who fought relentlessly for freedom, justice, and equality, but whose names are not always celebrated in mainstream history. Through my art, I seek to honor the bravery and strength of these individuals and elevate their stories for future generations to learn from. My goal is to inspire viewers to reflect on the contributions of these often-overlooked heroes and to recognize that their legacies continue to shape the world we live in today. By shining a light on these unsung warriors, I hope to inspire others to stand up for justice and freedom in their own lives.

One of the things that I loved most about working with Dismoc was his ability to bring his art to life through technology. His online exhibition was truly a work of art, and it was a joy to see how his paintings come to life in the digital realm. He truly understands how to use technology to enhance the viewing experience, and it was a pleasure to see his work in this context.

One of the things that set Dismoc Le Ma apart from other artists is his ability to capture emotion in his work. Whether it's the sadness of a figure standing in dark isolation or the joyful expression he depicts in his paintings.
