ART / WINNER
I was born in Nigeria. I am an artist specialised in pencil drawing, digital artworks and animation. Drawing is my passion so it doesn't matter what medium I use; my works are highly detailed and I have a very active imagination for my illustrations, so I tend to capture emotions in my works. I am a professional artist and my works span a variety of mediums, but I am best known for pencil drawing. my job In my digital artwork, "my father's land," I use the faces inside the Nigerian map to represent my country and its culture. I also enjoyed fiddling with the background to highlight the beauty of my nation and its people.
Our way of life is a digital college I made with free image's (no copyright). The artwork exhibit Nigeria culture as a mother breastfeeding her child which illustrate how we survive and lived by our culture.
The details of the collage images are different aspect of the Nigerian culture e.g. our food, artifact, dressing and music etc We live and survive by this way of life just like a baby and breastfeeding.
