‘Walking in a Box’ WIP. As kids growing up in forest zone Calabar, Nigeria, me and my sister Mary used to build swings on trees using ropes and wood. We sustained more than a few injuries but when we eventually got it right, the other kids around...they would come up and play with us too, and ‘twas great. Perfect starts? They almost never happen, just go ahead man...

3rd Law (2018) ‘There can be no joy on this planet without an equal weight of pain to balance it out on some unknown scale’ - Stepehenie Meyer These drawings were inspired by all the shortfalls (Rags) everyone who has tried to take a step towards something bigger (the Ankara fabric) may have experienced, and how they define the end goal of ever it is attained. On a broader scope of thought, they explore the back and forth; close but distant relationship existing between completely antonymous concepts, how black and white continually explain each other, good and bad, sadness and happiness, ugliness and beauty. #art#arts#artist#artseries#artistsoninstagram#enugu#coalcity#enugustate#drawing#drawingseries#pencildrawing#graphite#graphitedrawing#charcoaldrawing#hyperrealism#fineart#figuredrawing#blackandwhite#nigerianartist#creative#ankarafashion#draughtsman#draughtsmanship#newart#firstpostinawhile#042
