Emmanuel Buba, also known as Snowsketch, is a Digital Painter from Borno state.
The graduate of Educational Psychology from the University of Abuja says, “I have always had a thing for Illustration from childhood, though I had no access to comic books, TV and other art materials (creative items) like the regular kid, I let my imagination run wild regularly and drew whatever I perceived and after over two decades down the line, I could call myself an Artist. I started with ballpoint pen and pastel earlier on in my art career, but had to evolve to the contemporary Digital painting.”
“Many don’t know this, but I am a bit colour blind, but this has not retrograded my passion or even development art wise. I mostly enjoy portrait painting to my several other art styles and forms, though I got master through illustration art. I am glad to be making a living from my passion. I officially started art and digital painting as a profession in 2015 when I worked for Brains Art Studio for a year, but I currently own SNOWSKETCH studios as CEO and pairing up with new young talents.
“My goal as a Nigerian born artist is to put Nigeria on the map in terms of digital painting, so I mostly paint or draw specific concept arts to both encouraging young upcoming artist and also try to get international recognition also, though we still aren’t quite there yet.”
“I choose not to have a linear form of art style, but I get inspiration from contemporary digital artist and from personal creativity.”
