I’m a Nigerian Artist from New York and just finished my BFA at the University of Guelph, Canada. I paint and draw, and my style mixes realism with a touch of expressionism.
I believe that too much realism is boring: Why create art if you’re going to have it look exactly like a picture?
I've shown my works in various places like the Katonah Museum in 2016, a Solo Exhibition at Suffield Academy, sold-out in the Juried Art Show Silent Auction by the University of Guelph, 2020, and also sold-out in the Curious Configurations, an Art Show by The Art Closet Gallery in Chappaqua, NY, 2021.
I've worked with select clients like the NBA Legend Allan Houston and Stuart Lang (benefactor of the Lang School of Business at the University Of Guelph). I also received recognition from Snoop Dogg on Instagram.
My current interest is in the potential of NFTs in decentralizing the lucrative business of primary and secondary sales of art in the near future.
