Noah Olayinka Aliu is a visual artists whose works ranges from traditional art to digital art. His main focus is on 3D animation production, creating unique characters.
” I started drawing at a very tender age of about 4-5 years old and I was pretty good at it compared to my age mates. When I grew up, because of the uncertainties surrounding art as a career in my environment, I panicked and went to study business administration in a polytechnic instead of art.
Two years later, I graduated with an OND (Ordinary National Diploma) in business administration with no real sense of achievement or satisfaction. It was then I realized I would rather take my chances with art than spend the rest of my life doing something I’m at best average at doing just because of the fear of failure. I faced my fears and went further to sit for another examination in 2011 and got admitted into the University of Benin (UNIBEN) to study Fine and Applied Arts in 2012, it was then my journey to become a professional artist finally began.
After earning my undergraduate degree in Fine and Applied Arts (Graphics) from the University of Benin. I’ve been working for about six years in the art and animation field on different levels ranging from a freelancer to a contractor, a full-time artist (9-5) and even as an NFT artist. These experiences have broadened my knowledge and further improved me as an artist.”
