My blog today, is profiling a young artist, barely in his twenties whose work I have come to love and respect. I met this young fellow in one of my workshops for Artist and since then I have followed his work. The kind of sculptures he produces are fresh, innovative and fascinating to look at.  The subject matter he interpretes, in his work is expressive and deals with everyday events, that include humanity and culture and those are issues that matter to me, that is why I am a huge fan of his work.  Segun, is innovative in his sculpture pieces, it is easy to see what inspires this young and emerging Artist, he is inspired by his mum, women, and experiences in his society as well as metal objects.

Segun, has been involved in several exhibitions, showing his works to an audience that truly appreciates, his narrative about the society he inhabits

 12 Crafts to Make and Sell  We all need that side hustle, or just getting busy with a new idea or skill. Crafts always leaves a certain satisfaction for us because it means we created something and if that something is appreciated and sold, then that is a huge feeling that we never forget.  I remember my first ever craft was in grade school, home economics class, when we made table clothes.
