Based in Lagos, art has been part of Waale since childhood. “I started art in primary school because my class teacher in school then was an artist and so he teaches me drawings. Then my aunty also draws and I also got support from my parents who help me a lot.”

“I studied Fine Art at Yaba College of technology, where I learnt a lot more about drawing, ceramics, painting, sculpture, textile designs. I also learnt art at an Art studio. My illustrations are, however, self-taught.”

“I make art from funny things. When I draw or illustrate, I love expressing myself using lines (strokes).”

His inspiration comes from his day to day activities, because he draws every day.“I also get inspired by children (because most of my works are children).”
