Here is Toboke’s story:
“I want to say a big thank you to you for giving me the opportunity to be featured on your blog. I started painting from the early age of nine(9) growing up with a massive and unending love for art which I guess came from my background as a west African. Precisely, I am from Nigeria which has so much diversity of nature that comes with different varieties of color and landscape. My paintings are a combination of portraits, still-life drawing, nature sketches, perspective drawing, life drawing and a wide range of imaginary sketches. Having started over 10 years ago as an artist celebrating my 20th birthday it all started as a hobby and I finally took it pro just 6 months ago with a portfolio of over 60 painting that includes portraits, imaginary drawing, perspective drawing etc, working with three start up business in designing the framework of their logo through 3D lettering. As water is to the fish so is art to me. Here is a few of my works:
Thank you Toboke and we will continue to follow your work.
