The final year student of Fine and Applied Arts at the Obafemi Awolowo University started art at a young age. “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up” – Pablo Picasso.”

“I also started drawing from a very young age like many others but the difference is that I wasn’t restrained. I drew on anything I saw including exercise books, Bibles etc. Having gone through lots of training under different masters and higher institution, I am definitely not the same. “

“I specialize majorly in painting in different mediums such as charcoal, water colour but I work majorly in oil colour. My subjects of study include landscape, still life composition, figure and portraiture. Most of my works explore the beauty of forms on the human face through deliberate conditioning of light to capture an expression to pass information across to my viewers.”

“I am currently working on a series of SEVEN WORKS in a painting technique called grissaile which involves using of one colour to render an image but this time, in my own innovation of the technique. It will be fun for me and inspiration to others.”

On what inspires him, Joseph says, “I derive inspiration from the unceasing beauty of nature, human forms and little children. All these source from God whom I especially gain inspiration from. I also gather inspiration from other artists.”
