The human eye is man’s key to the future. It is why I am bespectacled. It is why I constantly seek the sight of others. Why I seek light. I was born in Lagos State on the 12th of August, 1994. with the gift of vision. I have hence grown to teach myself to see, but what seems innate must be cultured, still. In a plot to effect this scheme, I have sought the simplest tools of modern human expression- pencil and paper. Yet, I covet the eyes of others, that I may see art in more ways than one. This is the beauty of the human eye; to propagate all art. To the delight of others, I have appealed to sight and sense. Most effective, however, is Creative Drawing.

My name is Kenechukwu Nwadiogbu. I have been named Ambassador of the leadership training program, the Youth Empowerment Summit (YES), in order to motivate youths and potential entrepreneurs like myself. There will never be an end to the search of light and knowledge. This is the meaning of life. The reason behind all art, the definition of all art. A student of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the University of Lagos, life has only just begun. Yet, my goal is to broaden the scope of Kenart Creation, in my lifelong search for light. Indeed, to see, and give “art with definition”.passion for drawing grew out of insatiable thirst to document, to analyse, to recreate to comment on the world l live in, using figures to convey different messages. I started creating art in my kindergarten. I grew up in the country where female child exploring the world of art is regarded as peculiar and unusual. I started drawing by tracing figures from cartoon characters, just like today's artists redrawing the drawing of masters. My drawings are unique, able to communicate and evolve strong emotions. I work in acrylic, oil and pastel but my principal medium of work is pencil and charcoal.



Contact the artist via Keith McFarlane (Portraits Africa) at editor@negativeentropy.net who 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.
