His Papali Tree

Meaning of the painting: Growing up there was a papaya (paw paw) tree in my compound that my grandfather took care of. He used to water it and clean its surroundings until it started bearing fruit and he would always love to pick from his papali tree and eat it. It’s such a beautiful and vivid memory from my childhood that shows how beautiful natural things can be when it’s taken care of.

Artist Bio

Elissa Habib El-Ali

Hello, my name is Elissa. My artist name is Lizo. I’m an abstract artist. I’m half Sierra Leonean and half Lebanese.
I grew up in the beautiful and bustling city of Freetown. Growing up I’ve always been someone who loves being creative. I discovered my talent at a very young age, but didn’t act upon it until about 2 years
ago, when I got inspired by the different types of art in some countries I’ve visited. Starting my painting journey was the best decision I ever made because painting makes me feel real and allows me to express my emotions by turning them into art.
