Quigo expresses feminine energy and spirituality through art.

By Jeoffrey Mukubi

Quinn Goses known as Quigo is an architect by day and visual artist by night. She is one of kind artist whose unapologetic nature drives her creativity and nurtures her relationship with the cosmos.

In the past, Quigo exhibited her work with a group of other artists and had taken part in a few art fairs. However, she recently her first ever solo exhibition at the now popular Café Prestige in the central business district last weekend.

“I’ve always been interested in art when I was growing up; sketching and drawing had always been one of my favorite pastimes as a kid. These interests followed me throughout high school and eventually lead me to study Architecture at The Namibia University of Science and Technology. Since then, I’ve been doing architecture and art work parallel to each other,” she said.

The exhibition is titled ‘Into the Cosmos’ and she says that it was inspired by Namibian landscapes, the Cosmos and a post-apocalyptic future. “It’s an exploration of spirituality and feminine energy. It’s also a reflection of my psyche and where my headspace is most of the time,” Quigo added.

The Omaruru native says that she started putting her work online and people eventually started asking her to do art for them. “I never thought of it as a profession though, more like an exaggerated hobby that would lead me to becoming a multidisciplinary artist. I get bored easily so I explore many different kinds of art styles. However, my pen sketching and digital sketching is my go-to.” she said.

Her inspirations include animated work like cartoons, movies, anime. “This is mostly because I wanted to be an animator or at least a part of the process in some way or another. Another thing that inspires me is the Cosmos. I don’t know, but there is just something really mystical about space. Like, what is space? What’s out there?” she explains.

Ultimately, her goal for this exhibition is to represent herself and her beautiful country. “The goal is to share a glimpse of how I perceive my surroundings,” she said.
