'I'm very interested in the impact ancestry and our parents have on us, aware and unaware. The psychology of humans within these issues are the main priority and the narrative builds around it. As the son of a Dutch white mother and a Nigerian black father I know what it feels like to grow up in between cultures and to feel that you don't really belong anywhere. In Europe I'm black, in Africa I'm white. This pressing contradiction is the core of the research that forms an important theme of my work.'
