"I was just about to buy cream to lighten my skin when you (Lupita) appeared on the world map and saved me." - Unknown girl
 Portrait of Lupita nyong'o I (from BEAUTY & COLORS OF LIFE series)    Pastel on Paper 64 x 77 cm (June 2015) by Okpeyowa Moses Marquis                                        

Every action we make has an effect on our family, people around us, society, the world in general.Are you part of the problem or the solution?Will things get better or worse if you do certain things? You have to make this choice for yourself alone, today and tomorrow. No matter who you are or what you do, there is someone looking up to you and you can be that source of encouragement, inspiration and role model. Just be true to yourself and your dreams. 

So here is to say, Thank You again for inspiring that girl and every other young African girl or child out there by what you do. This piece is dedicated to Lupita, and to every other beautiful, colorful souls and inspiring role model in Africa and in the world. This is a non commission portraiture and a personal project works from studio productions series.
