Born in Lagos, Nigeria, amidst post-independence fervor, my roots intertwine urban and tribal life. Early exposure to art's essence shaped my creative DNA. Shuttling between village and city, the Nigerian civil war sealed our rural stay, imprinting profound inspirations for my artistic journey. Despite parental aspirations for medicine, a chance encounter with architecture sketches shifted my course. From a biochemistry stepping stone to a Soviet education, my artistic metamorphosis culminated in exhibitions, realizing my identity as a full-fledged artist in Almaty.
This book renavigates the path to that return to myself as an artist. Enjoy it
