Leave The Bandwagon, Swimming Against The Tide.
Medium: Acrylic on hard leather.
Artist: Chika Aneke
The above seminal art piece which was originally inspired by the compelling words of the renowned Civil Rights Movement leader and Wordsmith, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is an interestingly powerful art piece that dwells on the spectacular characteristics of the underwater creatures - the fishes.
A careful peek at the picture composition will readily reveal a glaring scene depicting life underwater where majority of the army of fishes are swimming in the opposite direction whereas the "rebellious" lonely fish just figured its original destined career path and so decided to swim towards it.
This unusual display of courage by the rebelling fish is more than just a wake up call to everyone - It is a remarkable inspiration for anyone that intends to succeed in any life's endeavors and it teaches that there is a serious need for one to activate the right kind of attitude if one desires to succeed.
Dare therefore, to muster the courage to believe in yourself by quitting to flow with the bandwagon and determine to swim against ocean tides despite persistent vicissitudes emanating from tempestuous ocean currents and you will most definitely stand out, for you cannot reach your destiny taking another man's path.
