Kelvin Okiemute Ibrudhabor, also known as Kelvinlee, is a Visual Artist, who loves art, soccer, and music.
“I started art in primary school. As a lover of comic books, I do draw them and form my own storyline. I never saw myself as an artist back then; I wanted to be a football superstar. But somehow art asserted itself and took centre stage when my art teacher back then in school encouraged me to take it seriously because he could see I was good at it. My family also encouraged me to pursue a career in art.”
“I went further to study it in the higher institution in Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma in Edo state. Although it was an interesting journey, it was not easy. Sometimes, I had to sacrifice my feeding allowance to buy art. But I stood through all the challenges because I was determined to get to the top.
“Thankfully, I successfully graduated and I am the founder of Kelvinlee Prime Art Studio in Warri, Delta state. I dreamt of it think of it and today it is a reality.”
“My art desires to show people beauty in everyday things that they would ordinarily overlook, e.g. beauty of nature, the environment and with my portrait art; I show people their true beauty.”
“I also use my art to show the rich culture we have here in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
I really want to use my art to bring people a little closer to things and inspire them to pay attention to events they would normally overlook.”
Kelvin is firstly inspired by the Holy Spirit. “I do nothing without Him; He is the one who instructs me on what to do and how to go about my art. I do dream my painting and I paint my dreams like great Picasso. My environment, nature and the happenings around me inspire me as well.”
