Tomek Sikora on his newest project:
“Colours are the most beautiful invention of the creator of this world. The variety of hues in nature and people makes us feel that we are in paradise.
Concerned by rising xenophobia and a fear of other cultures on the one hand and delighted with Chi-Chi Ude’s extremely bright and graphical collection of clothing inspired by Africa on the other, I gathered together a group of people and we created this little book dedicated to the power of colour.
Beautiful and colourful images were formed and I dedicate them to everyone – to those who are open to this world and to those who are still in fear because they don’t know it yet.
Let’s not be afraid of diversity… and to all my co-authors – thank you with all my heart.”
