...and they danced into the night to the beat of the drums. 

Joy, camaraderie, even exuberance. These are some of the emotions one feels when engaging with Monsuru Ademola Tukuru’s painting “An Exultant Conversation.” The painting transports you to a world of possibilities, one that truly reveals the infinite freedoms life has to offer. With their feet in sync with one another’s, their hearts race wildly and they surrender themselves to thenow - to the only moment they know to be real; the only moment thatisreal. The hurt and pain - inevitable truths of the human condition - take a backseat as they lose themselves to the glory of the present. All that matters right now is the beat of the talking drum - and the conversation they are having with it.
