Collection: Benjamin Omoike

Omoike Benjamin (b. 1990) in Lagos, is a full-time studio artist based in Lagos. He is a graduate of Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi, Nigeria, where he obtained an OND (General Arts) and an HND (Painting). His interest in art springs from attending exhibitions, and he further developed his knowledge of art after graduating by participating in various art workshops with the Universal Studio of Art, National Theatre, Iguanmu.

He uses the medium of painting and mixed media to explore and personalize his techniques, relating to urban issues that allude to the lives and moods of everyday city people. Most of his works feature a profusion of rich texture, incorporating tactical motifs and forms to connect with African Contemporary Art, giving it an uncommon finish.
