Talking about his challenges, the visual artist says, “In paintings, my challenges are inferior art materials; it is difficult to get standard art materials for paintings unless I decide to order for it overseas, which is very expensive. And concerning fashion, power failure has been a major challenge and also, some made-in-Nigerian fabrics are not standard enough to satisfy some clients that are very much into details.
