"Scholars say that Africans don’t have a word for art. I say, Westerners don’t have a word for art. What is art? Westerners say, art is something that’s never used; art for art’s sake. What sort of art is never used? All art is used. African Art is heavily used. My definition of art is, something that is used to express people’s ideas about the world they live in. In my mind, this means, Africans are the only people who understand art and that we, the Westerners are the only people who don’t have a word for art"
