Challenges Enil Arts faces in his work
However, it does not come without any challenges. According to the talented artist, there was a time he got chastised for making the art on a trotro mate he never knew.
"I was in the car when I decided to make a drawing of the bus conductor. When I was done, we had reached our destination and the mate had stepped out to look for change. The driver got curious when I kept asking of the young man and upon seeing what I'd done, got angry. So the drawing was not accepted," he said.
