He is a multi media artist. Also, his works are influenced by his African yoruba background which is mostly decorative, heavily patterned motifs and colourful tend to neutralise dominating gray surroundings. There is empharsizes on head ( Ori- Destiny).The size of the head is the artistic visual interpretation of what the future holds. In Yoruba culture and belief system , head is where authority and reasoning come from,therefore,your success in life depend on how you make good or bad use of your head.The head is considered bigger than the rest of the body because is essence of man. Therefore the burden it bears makes it bigger.Our heads constituting our life-source and controlling personality and destiny. Three different modes of representing the head are identified in Yoruba aesthetics : the naturalistic, which refers to the external, or physical, head (orí òde); the stylized, which hints at the inner, or spiritual, head (orí inú); and the abstract, which symbolizes the primeval material (òkè ìpòrí) of which the inner head was made. Although the fate of each individual is believed to have been predetermined in heaven before birth "into" the earth, a good or bad destiny is no more than a potentiality for success or falure; a successful life depends on how well one makes use of one's head here on earth. The prominence given to the head in Yoruba aesthetics is thus a reflection of its sociobiological importance as the coordinating center of human existential struggles. His recent project which was conceived and curated by Phil Growick.the author of “The secret journal of Dr Watson”, is a book cover for Sherlock Holmes novel entitled: The strange Case of Violin Savant by Gregg Rosenquist.
