Donated by the artist

"From inception, CCA Lagos has continuously championed ideas and programs that promotes the growth and appreciation of contemporary art in Nigeria. My support for CCA Lagos at this point is to enable them sustain the ideals of their late founder Bisi Silva, and successively continue to provide a platform for contemporary art to thrive."


"My models are chosen from varied sources. Sometimes they are friends around me, other times they’re sourced from random pix, and the mass media. They are not meant to be known faces, otherwise it takes away from the exploratory nature of the composition and it’s process; at such, has a beginning and an end. If appropriated from the media, I reconfigure the features to suit my purpose as my interest is in mostly capturing moods and expressions."
