These past few weeks, had me preparing and getting ready for one of my most ambitious and revealing Solo exhibitions yet, as an abstract Artist, who creates Art on any material availed to me.
I say ambitious, because I was going to 'Show and tell' to an Art crowd, that is new to my kind of free spirited way of creating Art, where boundaries and text book definition of a fine artist just doesn't exist.
The Art I exhibited, consisted of Ink Art on Paperboard, Newspaper and brown box paper.
Others included, Jeans Sculpture pieces and rope Art and textile Art.
Creating Art from discarded items, is different and relevant, when it is both functional and conveys a message to the audience in its presence.

It was a tricky and nervous pitch, I made to my audience.
letting them into a very personal journey of mine, on why I create 
'Art the way I see it' from within me, in my purest form of interpretation, and a determination to Inspire others, to do same with their Artistic talent. 
Inspiring other well established Artist.

Was indeed a tall order.
The reviews where there, the questions where genuine and the surprise was real.
 The simplicity in my style of creativity and my color driven Art was called to question several times, but that is why we create Art, to shake things up a bit and in the process get noticed. 

I think I achieved that!
I truly enjoyed every conversation, critiquing and ideas, that were exchanged and the support, my 'kind' of Art received in Lagos.
It was indeed a rewarding and educating Journey, and the Press releases where kind and encouraging.
                                       Talking with the press.

I was Inspired by other Artist who attended my exhibition, and Collectors who collected my work,with a huge sigh of relief and gratitude, I say thank you to all and......... Enjoy.
