Graphite and colour pencil on paper (61cm by 81cm)
"ONIDIRI" (hair stylist)
I am an African, a Nigerian, an hairstylist from no specific culture. I wake up everyday with joy and the desire to create an art piece; the art of hair styling (which equates the task or process of sculpting) every single process and movement is precise and rapid.
The hair is my canvas, my fingers and hair comb are my brushes and palette knife, my solvent and pigments are hair-cream and hair-gel. My daughter is please and interested in my art, just as I was at her age.
Wait till you see how the finished hairstyle expresses my artistic skill. My daughter is pleased even though the artwork is still in progress.
