While growing up, I’ve always loved anything that has to do with creativity irrespective of the field.
I’ve always said to myself “whatever you do, always try and make yours different so you can stand out”.
“Following my school of thought, I created one of the most influential Artiste in the world, “A Son of Mercy” David Adedeji Adeleke “OBO” using the Rubik’s Cubes.
“The music star “Omo Baba Olowo” that who with and without his music has been a source of inspiration to many young people around the world, including myself.
“He has also made us believe that in as much as “A Good Time” is here, we shouldn’t relent but keep pressing on because there will always be “A Better Time”.
“This is a proof to show that “Art” isn’t limited to drawings and paintings but can be created and displayed using the little things that surrounds us. All we just need is to be creative and we will create Magic!!!!..
“This is my very first public art work.
How would you rate this exceptional art?
E choke Abi??”
