Location: Nigeria

I was born in Ibadan, Nigeria on December 24, 1979. And grew up in Ibadan, a native of Ijebu Imosan (Ogun State) Nigeria. I started my artistic career early enough in my primary school days and graduated from the Polytechnic, Ibadan (HND in Fine Art).

Culture is said to be the way of life of “a people” the most beautiful phenomenon in life is “Nature”. Mother Nature affects the culture of “any people”. I have been practicing privately and attending Exhibition and I have participated in Competitions and Exhibitions.

I often got inspiration for my art through the dynamics of society, my environment and imagination most importantly from God The Almighty and I study national and international art masters. I want to be the best in all my doing and makes impact on human life with my ideas through creativity.

Basically my approach to Arts is the veto power one has over his mind through which life affecting inventions are born. Art and artistic designs of an artist are affected by his culture so much that his artistic work are often a reflection of his culture. This allows for culture transfer and appreciation between different cultures via interactions. This is what I want to show the world.
