Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Clothe and magazine cuttings on Canvas.

Fadeyi was my secondary school Fine arts teacher. He had his ideas about how one should work to become a professional artist; I had mine. He disapproved of how I waited till the last minute to finish my work, preferring instead to research the team and make other preparations. In exasperation, he once told me that I would not make it as an artist. Well, 26 years later, I am still working as an artist.
