Wilson Okonye Dickson has been painting for over two decades. He describes his style as a style which speaks to the soul, an art that is emotional and holds passion.
His concepts are perceived to be from people and nature. He loves painting landscapes, abstract and figurative art. He recently started exploring acrylic on texturized canvas. Wilson loves detailing and this is why he chooses oil over acrylic, “oil dries slowly and it allows me to add as much detail as possible when working. This makes me happy,” he said.
In his 20 years in the art business, he has had more than 20 group exhibitions, which were held in the following places - Terraculture, National Museum etc. He also was the secretary of the Society of Nigerian artists for 3 years and during his tenure, also participated in group exhibitions. He also has joined the Pastel Annual show twice.
Wilson’s art is distinctive. When he’s not painting, he’s busy writing songs.
Wilson’s most treasured paintings and photographs were retrieved from the public and is stored as a gift for his kids in the near future.
