In simple white shapes, the stripes of a zebra take form at the center of this composition by Ghanaian artist K. Baka. He paints this amazing composition in a modern style, framing the image of the zebra against a multicolored, abstract background. Says the artist, "Life is like a Zebra; there are white and black stripes on it. When you are on a white stripe, walk slowly and enjoy it. When you are on a the black stripe, raise your collar, open your eyes, and run fast as you can to get to a white one. But remember there is always a white stripe after a black one."
K. Baka has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1000 and the most recent for $500. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of dyes and cotton fabric for continued production.
