Solomon Omogboye is a Nigerian impressionist painter born in 1982. This artwork depicts a young boy in a posture of prayer, with his hands clasped together and his head tilted slightly upward.

The style combines elements of realism and abstract expressionism. The boy's facial features and hands are rendered with a high degree of detail, showcasing the textures of his skin and the intensity of his expression. The background and parts of the boy's body feature expressive brush strokes and splashes of color, giving the piece an energetic and dynamic feel. Notably, the boy's shirt appears to be made from collaged newspaper clippings, adding an interesting textual element and suggesting layers of meaning. The overall composition evokes a sense of hope, introspection, and spirituality, capturing a poignant moment of prayer and reflection.

Omogboye's dynamic creations have been displayed in galleries in Lagos, Johannesburg, Franschhoek, and Théoule-sur-Mer, France. His distinct style is defined by vivid and energetic brushwork, and his playful depictions of human anatomy have earned him recognition both locally and internationally, cementing his position as one of Nigeria's foremost artists.

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."
