Tafadwa Masudui's brightly colored paintings depict scenes filled with balloons, people, and patterns and reflect on optimism and the pursuit of a better future as observed through the lens of a migrant person.

“The balloons are not just masks of optimism, they also represent the composed pressure under which some of us are. A balloon can pop any moment, yet it represents happiness and celebration. That balloon is me staying calm under difficult circumstances while chasing the dream of a bright future”. - Tafadzwa Masudi, June 2021.
