About this submission

The Canvas is born a reflection of the struggles of those in Nigeria's creative space. It's a mirror held up to my own experiences, struggling as a writer, and it is also a deeply personal experience to a lot of Nigerian creatives who just want to be able to do what they love without fail. This film is also partly inspired by the concept of The Tortured Artist, who births wonder from pain. Is there really a relationship between pain and beauty, or is it a concept that has been romanticised in a bid to find meaning in one's work?
