Izere is represented by Mitochondria Gallery in Houston, Texas. “Creating is an amazing process. Most of the time I enjoy trying new things. I really like the heavy strokes of the impressionists, the flow of their textured, torn, foundry colors, and different grayscales as well as their engagement in open compositions and light changing. This gave birth to my impasto style. I see life as a passion of sticking to what we like and the endless battles of everything else that we abhor. Art is one of the open ways of talking to people in a graphic/visual way of imagination. The emotions, feelings and all the untold stories behind these makes people feel connected.” – Izere Antoine Izere Antoine has participated in two Solo exhibitions at Mitochondria Gallery.
