Johnbosco Bernard Ohab Tochukwu, also known as TBJ, is a Nigerian Visual Artist.
“Growing up as a little kid, I’ve always loved to scribble with my siblings. Becoming a visual artist started out as fun for me, (which hasn’t changed till date) then it turned into a passion. I believe I am still evolving.
TBJ believes that at least 90% of African visual artists nowadays have got stories on how they were criticized, discouraged, and scorned for becoming an artist and of which few fell to the sword and the ones who didn’t are labeled rebels or the prodigal child of the family. This is something that imbibes fear mainly on upcoming creative heads.
“My art is inspired by Love, People and Culture. And I hope my art inspires as many people [artists/non-artists] as possible to keep being real and never allow the negative energy get to them.”
“If you love it, try to discover your strength and make magic happen. Through his works, he always tries to emphasize the importance of ‘self love’.”
