The sculptor’s journey as an artist began when he was still a child. He recognised that he had a creative talent, which led him to pursue a career in the arts by studying at the Auchi School of Art and Design in Nigeria.

Speaking about what inspires his work, he says: “Life! Everything around me. The people around me. The wonder of life and its hidden mysteries are all inspirations."

He says that that his subjects are mostly birds because they symbolise the expression of my ideas, "I see birds as a symbol of freedom and self-expression”.

The Lagos-based artist says his biggest struggle is funding and access to studio space.
