Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Mixed media and News print on Canvas.

This artwork will depict how students after years spent in higher institutions are unemployed. It seeks to explain high level of unemployment in the country and inaccessibility of graduates to the few available jobs.
The joy of every student after dropping the ‘last paper’ is to project how he or she will get employed or become a successful entrepreneur, unfortunately, their joy is short-lived.
An average Nigerian graduate gets frustrated with the Nigerian system. Hopelessness and despair becomes the order of the day with massive unemployment, epileptic power supply and inaccessibility to loans to start businesses.
At the end of four or five academic years in school, the unemployed graduates become urchins and later turn armed robbers, prostitutes and political thugs during elections.
