• born in Ibadan, Nigeria grew up in Ibadan but a native of Ijebu Imosan (Ogun State) Nigeria. I started my artistic career early enough in my primary school days. 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.

• 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 af-fected by his culture so much that his artistic work are often a reflection of his cul-ture. This allows for culture transfer and appreciation between different cultures via interactions. This is what I want to show the world.
