I must reserve some credit to the many contemporary African artists and masters whose styles of works have come to bear on my way of thinking. The strongest influences that have actually molded my art style from the early stage of my career which had shaped the direction of my art could be attributed to the cubist masters Pablo Picasso and Cezanne whose artworks started as my early influence and inspiration, from admiring their art style I came to create my own distinctive style which I like to refer to as ‘contemporary realism’.
I work mostly in watercolor, acrylic and mixed media. My style of artwork is largely contemporary, working in a distinctive manner that depicts a peculiar and personal style. In addition to the contemporary African art style I also do representational art which includes both landscape and human figure. My figurative rendering are mostly African women depict in such a manner to portray the beauty of the African woman in her traditional costume. The wide scope of my art style ranging from modern contemporary art to representational art was born out of the need to be versatile so as to represent and accommodate the varying interest and taste of diverse art lovers.
Represented by the ‘Bricklane gallery’ London in a group exhibition themed ‘Art in mind’ from the 26th of august to 6th of September 2010.
As an emerging artist, my dream which I am earnestly striving at is to gain an appreciable recognition in the art world and I have not relented at keeping this amber of hope aflame in spite of odd like inadequate fund to properly promote my art. Though all hope is not lost as I know that nothing worthwhile comes easy. My dream which I hope will not fail to come true is to attend the prestigious solo art expo at New York, Miami and Las-Vegas, the Philadelphia contemporary art show organize by the October gallery and the Florence biennial in Italy.
