Joseph’s forte lies in sculpting metal. Fascinated by the way metal evolves when manipulated, he regularly uses it as his chosen medium, often combining the innate flexibility of steel and wood in his work. He produces both abstract and realistic sculptures that are imbued with cultural meaning and significance. His dynamic work takes on various forms, portraying movement, strength and even weightlessness.
His creative practice evolves around expositions of traditional themes and of vibrancy of cultures of the West African people in contrast to Western and Arabic cultures.
Joseph has been inspired by his African background, the glamour of their costumes/attire and western influences that has deeply truncate its relevance in today life. He portray people and their cultures to reverberate their importance in our daily lives which has great significance in his early life and training.
His sculptures reveal relics of his culture that have been trodden by winds of civilization which he seeks to bring to spotlight; not neglecting western cultures that he now incorporate. He feel everyone should be identified by the clothes they wear and should strive to preserve that rich heritage in their art and day to day life which ‘Enchantment’ represent.
His African traditions themes also resonate in his work depicting people and attires worn by musicians such as (GanGan drummer), that plays the talking drum; (Traditional Marriage) of western influences; hat, shirt and horse-tail (Cultural Dimension) that evoke Arabic influences of Turban.
He strived to bring to spotlight the vibrancy of life, affection, intimacy and movements with the intent of reinvigorating joy and happiness to everyone.
