Artist's Statement, Commissions, Facebook & Website


I am a full time, self taught artist from Kogi State, Nigeria. I was born on April 6th, 1988. I am a graduate of Kogi State University and hold a BSc in Physics. My work is about connections that human beings make, or don’t make, through language: a gesture, a look, an expression, physical placement, cultural values, standards, emotions, and desires. Exploring how we communicate, accept, constrain, or reject these connections to form relationships is an evident theme throughout my work.
