Recently, senior Michael-David Archibong competed in the Rodeo Art Show, and he won Best of Show.

Archibong started drawing at the age of 5. Everyone isn’t an expert artist at the age of 5, but he said that God’s grace helped him become better.

“God showed me that there’s always room to grow, so I kept going and realized that I loved it,” Archibong said.

His work aims to present a movement which he is starting called “One Culture.”

“One Culture’s meaning is that we are not divided, but we are one people,” Archibong said. “In my art I try to relay the message that although we live in a time that society reveals the lie of separation, in truth we are all in unison. One race. One culture.”

With his favorite artist being God, winning Rodeo Art was like a dream or blessing to him.

“Winning rodeo art felt amazing,” Archibong said. “I was more happy than anything when looking back on all the stress Mrs.Coffee and I have put into these past 3 years and to see how far we’ve come.”

Although high school art classes will end for him since he’s a senior he will be furthering his artistic path in the future. He plans to practice animation at Pratt Institute New York.
