Work History

I love to draw and I am deeply interested in how these drawings can be applied to different surfaces as a way to make them accessible and visible facilitating connections with and inspiring people in the process. The drawings I make are created using traditional and/or digital processes and are indicative of my desire to combine different 'cultural' elements in other to create art that is universally appealing and reflective of my interests in textile motifs, the graffiti aesthetic, t-shirt graphics, sneakers, advertising, character design and geometry. www.seekproject.com +++++++++++++++++++++ Selected Exhibitions 26/365: An exhibition of Illustrated letters Lagos, Nigeria 10-24 September 2011 Dreaming Hazel Dooney Latrboe Contemporary Art Gallery Morwell, Victoria, Australia 10-24 September 2011 Smart Car Festival England 10th September 2011 African & African- Caribbean Design Diaspora 2011 Festival The Bargehouse, London 9-25 September 2011 Illustrated Letters Exhibition Copenhagen, Denmark 3 June - 10 June 2011 Smart Car Urban Stage drive-through Art Gallery London, England 3 May - 16 May 2011 The Green Summary Exhibition Center for Contemporary Art, Lagos , Nigeria 20 December 2010 - 21 January 2011 7sins International Graphic Design Contest Travelling Exhibition 2010 Santa Cruz de Tenerife 18 - 29 june 2010 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria 13 - 26 august 2010 Madrid 12 - 20 of November 2010 The Toe Fluff Show Swindon, England 30 July - 11 August 2010 1st Annual Creative Careers Fair Lagos, Nigeria 15 - 16 July 2010 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Selected Offline Publications 2011: Lagos Life, London Living by Bobo Omotayo. 2011: Ijusi Magazine South Africa #26: Afrika Typografika issue. 2011: The Publishers Club Collaborative Zine #1 2011: The Tote Bag Book by Jitesh Patel.
