“I’ve mastered the use of pencil to impressive extents and I’m seeking to master other mediums.”

“I was born in Jos but moved to Rivers state in 2000 and stayed there for 13 years before, leaving for university in Ghana, currently studying Civil Engineering at Accra Institute of technology Ghana. I enjoy music a lot and I’m mostly introverted.”

Speaking on how he started, Treasure says, “I’ve always loved art for as long as I can remember, the overwhelming passion has guided me to the current stage I’m in. Back in high school, I loved to draw comics with friends, but I left it for a while until 2014 when university friends would occasionally commission me but at this point, it was just a hobby. 2016 is the year I took it more professionally and I’ve been practicing until date.”

“My art is just an expression of how I feel at certain stages of my life; it has always been a way of expressing myself. What it portrays is subject to change depending on what I need to express at any point.”

“I’m hoping to use my art to influence the society in the nearest future. Currently, I am a work in progress, learning every day how I can use my art to influence the social life of the world and make the world a better place.”

“So far, music is majorly what inspires my art, although my art is an expression of how I feel, my emotional status also influences and inspires my art. I draw when I’m excited, sad, angry, nervous etc, it’s therapeutic for me.”
