His work is inspired by the people around him, daily interactions that portray human connection, and his hunger to create unimagined worlds.

He is currently studying Architecture at the University of Lagos, Nigeria. He is very intentional about finding his nexus between art and architecture, with both disciplines inspiring each other. He credits his parents for getting him his first set of art materials at a very young and for their endless support from the conception of his journey as an artist. He showed a great deal of interest and passion during his arts and crafts classes in his early years. Growing up, making art was more of a hobby for him, however, his love for it intensified steadily through the years, and a stronger bond formed between himself and his art ever since. He looks to inspire authenticity as well as explore his ideas and creative styles no matter how mundane they may seem because he believes that seeing the big picture sometimes requires an intersection of so many ideas. He tells his stories with a variety of mediums – textured paper, upcycled paper, paint, and digital mediums.
His works have been exhibited at the Adidas flagship London with Creative Debuts (2022) and “The Ties that bind us” virtual group exhibition by The Cowrie Culture (2022).
