“I come from a very cultural background. I was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria. My dad is Yoruba and my mom is Igara. Both cultures have vibrant colors, patterns, and different styles. I love these things about my culture and I wanted to bring into the work I do. I also love using black and white images to help make the colors stand out. I want to use color to bring focus to the subjects.”
