RETURN OF THE HERD: A timeless landscape of the Fouta Jalon in Northern Guinea. The Fulani tribe put great value on their livestock. The shepherds let the herd have their last drink in the stream before going home. The artist uses the transition of light and shadow to freeze the rare mood of this scene.
From the islands of Halong Bay to the dusty back roads of south Texas, Lap Ngo has traveled the world. His paintings are an expression of his journeys. They speak to us as beautifully as the "Bride" in the African Series tells us of her wedding day. Lap captures life in all his paintings from all his worlds whether that is a European village or a forgotten castle in Morocco.
