Sam Ovraiti: Ovraiti’s style centres around his use of colour. Known as the most expressive artist of his time, he popularizes the use of chalk pastels and watercolour paintings. These watercolour paintings express reality through careful control and tenderness towards the medium, while often depicting Fulani women or local folklore themes. On the other hand, his oil paintings express complexity through their layers. These differing techniques exemplify his talent and ability to create expression
Gbenga Offo: Offo’s style is similar to Cubism in that he solidly identifies with painstakingly drawn lined and geometrically-shaped figures with large eyeballs. However as he describes, “I didn’t want to go entirely there. I’d rather be free to play games with the geometry of the human form.” With this style, he attempts to tell a story about his environment, particularly in the debates surrounding conceptual and installation art.
