Gideon is a passionate and dynamic artist. He is interested in poetry and language, and has what might be described as a "metaphorical imagination", a sensitivity to ideas and words almost equal to the studied engagement of his eye. He is a Member of Araism Movement, and the first and only artist practicing pencil-based Araism. Gideon participated in the 2014 SNA OYO Exhibition, "100 Years of Creative Existence: Projecting into the Future".

Gideon is a graduate of Ibadan Polytechnic, Ibadan, Nigeria. He holds a Diploma (2010) in Art and Design. In 2011 he became the CEO and Art Director of Àràdisé Studio. In 2012 he was appointed Graphics Designer at Plaices Designs, and in 2013 was promoted to Director of Graphic Art,. He is since 2012 the Official Graphic Designer for Tatiwere News Magazine.



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.
