Going back as far as my earliest attempts at doing art, I feel that I’ve always had, right from the beginning, a certain responsibility to carry on that artistic tradition. I feel that in my own way, I play the role of storyteller, using visual imagery to tell the story and portray the mythology and the elements of the animal and spirit worlds. I feel this is as important as keeping the linguistic traditions alive. – Abraham Anghik Ruben
