Art Stronger than Hate: Artoonist Issa Nyaphaga
Yesterday I had the fortunate opportunity to meet and observe an artist working with students at the Eldorado Community School in Santa Fe, at the invitation of art teacher Roni Rohr. Issa Nyaphaga is an artist, "artoonist," humanist, and educator from the Tikar tribe in Douala, Cameron, in Central Africa, now a citizen of the world.
