noun

Artist Statement

Going through the process of me trying to read, I had to take my time to study. I had to take the words one by one. Dyslexia made me very, very patient. That experience has also added to my art. I use sticks, and I lay them one by one, putting them together patiently. I think that is a power for me in my artwork.

Artist Bio

I'm a graduate of HND Sculpture from the School of Art, Design & Printing at Yaba College of Technology in Nigeria. Me and my artwork have been featured on Reuters, CGTN Africa and Guardian TV. I was a part of Synergy, a group exhibition at the gallery at the Landmark in Lagos, Nigeria, in 2022.
