My name is Ayokanmi Binutu, a Nigerian creative and concept artist. Art to me comes naturally, to me it is life, a very perfect way of expression. For to put down in the physical what you see in your minds eye via a medium, to create something beautiful out of nothing; that's art. 

All this presents for me an ever increasing inspiration, joy and exciting milestone in my artistic journeys that are ever evolving and creatively never ending.



Note. In addition to works by his own hand, artist Ayokanmi offers commissions by other artists managed by his arts' based business, Pencil 'n' Brushes. Users are free to commission work from the artist-proprietor either directly or indirectly from artists managed or commissioned by his business. In the latter case the agreement is between Ayokanmi's business and the commissioning parties. Portraits Africa will not get involved. The safeguards and provisions of Portraits Africa only apply to commissions agreed with and executed by the artist himself. 



Contact the artist via Keith McFarlane (Portraits Africa) at editor@negativeentropy.net will provide an introduction. Artist and buyer are free to negotiate on both subject and price. While the artist has provided a guide-price or price indication, the first step in any commission is that artist and buyer agree the price, size, subject and materials of the composition and its delivery date. Portraits Africa will then request the agreed commission fee from the buyer, and on receipt of that fee will advise the artist to start work. The fee will not be released to the artist until the work has been completed and delivered to the buyer. Should a dispute arise between artist and buyer, it is Portraits Africa that will adjudicate. For the service prospectus, Terms & Conditions, see Commissioning a Portrait.
