Country: United States
I am a 26yr old Nigerian-American digital artist & martial artist with 8+ years of experience in freelance design, art handling, photography, character design, animation and 3D design. I knew I wanted to be a graphic designer before I knew what graphic design was. My first time returning to Nigeria in 2016 was an event that truly impacted my art, my life, and my mind. For the first time in my life, everywhere I looked, there was somebody that looked like me. Being back home made me realize just how much I didn’t know and needed to know about my birthplace. It reminded me that I need to connect to that part of myself. That experience evolved my approach to my art. Since then, I’ve been bridging my Nigerian roots with my southern experience because there are many parallels. I’m currently based in Columbia, South Carolina.
