Solomon Omogboye's captivating artwork, entitled "A Big Day," captures the essence of a young girl in a moment of introspection, her hands delicately poised near her mouth, evoking a sense of timidness and wonder. Through his masterful strokes, Omogboye invites viewers into a world brimming with a kaleidoscope of emotions—awe, excitement, gratitude, and more—each layer enriching the observer's journey.

Hailing from Lagos, Nigeria, Solomon Omogboye, born in 1982, emerges as a luminary in the realm of impressionist painting. His artistic journey burgeoned through dedicated studies in art and industrial design at the Lagos State Polytechnic, complemented by a tenure at the prestigious Lagos National Theatre. In 2007, his exceptional talent earned him the esteemed AADS Best Artist of the Year award, marking a milestone in his illustrious career. Transitioning from shaping young minds as an art educator, Omogboye embarked on a new chapter in 2014, settling in South Africa to further expand his artistic horizons.

Omogboye's expansive portfolio is a testament to his versatility, employing mediums such as charcoal, pastel, acrylic, and oil on canvas to articulate his thoughts and visions. His vibrant creations have graced esteemed exhibitions across diverse locales, from the bustling streets of Lagos to the cultural hubs of Johannesburg, Franschhoek, and even Théoule-sur-Mer, France. Defined by bold brushstrokes and whimsical renderings of the human form, his art resonates both locally and internationally, positioning him as a trailblazer in Nigeria's artistic landscape.

Rooted in a profound appreciation for life's inherent beauty, Omogboye's art serves as a mirror to the complexities of existence, embracing imperfections and celebrating the essence of being. For him, painting transcends mere technique; it becomes a conduit for channeling intentions and fostering a deeper connection with the world—a sentiment that reverberates through each stroke of his brush, inviting viewers to pause, reflect, and find beauty in the everyday.

About Artist

Solomon Omogboye is a gifted impressionist painter born in Lagos, Nigeria, in 1982. He studied art and industrial design at the Lagos State Polytechnic before starting work at the Lagos National Theatre. He won the AADS Best Artist of the Year award in 2007.

Omogboye worked as an art teacher for six years before moving to South Africa in 2014. "I've always been a prolific painter, encouraged by my mother, a teacher," he says. "My paintings reflect my thoughts, inspiration and ideas, using mainly charcoal, pastel, acrylic and oil on canvas.

Omogboye has exhibited his work in Lagos, Johannesburg, Franschhoek and in Théoule-sur-Mer, France. His bold, lively paintings, characterised by energetic, bold strokes and capturing playful expressions of human anatomy, have attracted local and international attention for many years, firmly settling him among Nigeria's leading artists.

"The beauty I see in every existence is my inspiration to paint," he says. "For me, painting is a practice of focusing intentions moment to moment – mirroring what life is really about."

This gifted and humble artist says he finds inspiration wherever he travels – and it's not always the obvious thing that catches his eye. "My paintings reflect what I continue to learn in life: that the only perfection is imperfection and the appreciation of what is."
