Hope.

This was an artwork I made to depict a state of hope. Remember that feeling, the one where you find yourself in a really dire situation, and it seems you don’t really have any plan, or any way out at the tlook, but you’re still hopeful anyway?. Well I attempted to depict that exact feeling in this piece. Its a feeling of hope, but not optimism, a feeling where there seems to be no end in sight, immediate or far, but there’s a glimmer of hope that there’ll be an end. There’s no upbeat feeling or attitude about it, but there’s hope, and its all there is.

I used a combination of colours that I felt conveyed this feeling, greens and yellows. The colors are bright, as hope is a good thing, but I tried to give the girl a slightly saddened and worn out look, still her head is lifted in hope, and it’s all she has, but to get through anything, its all she needs.

The power in dance.

In this piece I tried to capture the power in a simple dance. Its funny how dances like the waltz or tango, or any dance shared by two people really, manage to create memories that last a lifetime. How a simple holding of hands, a gentle shuffling of the feet, becomes stories parents tell their children, reasons people smile to themselves when nobody’s around. There’s nothing complex about dance, you don’t even have to really know how to do it, yet it manages to forge complex relationships. Such is its power, and its necessity in the world we live in.

I tried to give this piece a romantic realistic look. So i used brown undertones

Stage queen.

This was a piece of art I created called the stage queen. Inspired by a dancer I watched at the theatre. It depicts a woman who flourishes in the spotlight, who loves to captivate the audience anywhere she is, be it in a small room with thirty people, or a grand audience of thousands. She feels all the attention focused on her, she embraces it, and enjoys it. She finds happiness in the applause of strangers, in the wows of their lips, in the noise of their ovations and the awe in their faces. She may be anything else, anywhere else, but the stage is her domain, and she alone is queen.

Coat patterns.

This is a concept illustration for a european style coat. Its conservative, elegant and kind of old school. But its supposed to convey a formal, powerful look. I wanted the sketch model to have a strong European look, hence the turtleneck and the accessories.

submerged.

This was an art piece I did to depict a “happy place”. Its the place everyone has in their lives where they go to forget all their worries and live in the moment. The piece depicts a young girl in a kind of underwater utopia. A place where she loses herself in the beauty of it all, a place where she is happy.

Although the concept is a happy one, I didn’t try to use too many bright colors, but just enough to get the message across.

Ankara design concept

This is a concept illustration for an off the shoulder Ankara jumpsuit with simple rose designs. I tried to keep its design modern but still retain its traditional Nigerian touch. Its rose pattern design is simple and bright, which agrees with many Ankara trends. I also tried to make the sketch models pose and anatomy realistic. I also accessorised with classic Nigerian flat sandals to complement to its traditional look.

Ebony and ivory

This was an artwork I did while exploring possible concepts for an art piece with mixed races. Its really straightfoward, two women of different colors, lying in a field with their hair intertwined in a sea of black. Its meaning is simple, harmony between races. I tried to give this artwork a realistic but somehow grim look.
