African Community Awards: African Community in Germany Awards 2022.Dr. Vivian Timothy wins Best African Artist in Germany Award at the AFRONEWS – Ortel Mobile African Community in Germany Awards 2022.
Who is Dr. Vivian Timothy?
Dr Vivian Timothy is the Best African Artist in Germany 2022. Dr Timothy is a Nigerian artist based in Germany and an advocate for the rights and agency of the woman and girl-child.
While growing she wanted to be a singer, but she never ventured into it because of the many discouragements in the industry. She never studied art, but she has always been fascinated by art.
Dr Timothy gets inspirations for her painting through fantasising and creating of a vision in her mind in her quiet moments.
Many of her works are deeply embedded in her African roots in that they focus on women, the beauty of the African cultures, traditions and the socio-economic anomalies in her country of birth – Nigeria and in Africa as a whole.
Dr Timothy’s art journey started when her friend visited her with some of her paintings that left her mesmerised. From that moment, she started fantasising and sketching and researching popular artists.
From there she started having ideas and wanted to express herself through paintings. Being a perfectionist, she wanted to present something perfect to her audience and that’s how art was unleashed in her.
Dr Timothy has held several educational and sensitisation projects through her artworks and presentations on the Beauty of Cultural heritage, Gender inequality and challenging socio-economic injustice and stereotypes in Africa, Europe, UK, and the USA.
