Solomon Omogboye's artwork, entitled "Beauty of Innocence," presents a striking depiction of a young girl adorned with four pigtails, each adorned with a distinctively colored bow. The poignant expression on her face suggests a profound sense of sadness and inner turmoil. Through this artwork, Omogboye skillfully conveys a spectrum of emotions, encompassing awe, wonder, excitement, gratitude, appreciation, joy, hope, freedom, acceptance, and curiosity, thus enhancing the viewer's emotional experience.

Born in Lagos, Nigeria, in 1982, Solomon Omogboye is a remarkably gifted impressionist painter with a rich artistic background. He honed his artistic talents through formal education in art and industrial design at the Lagos State Polytechnic, followed by professional work at the Lagos National Theatre. In recognition of his exceptional talent, Omogboye was awarded the prestigious AADS Best Artist of the Year in 2007. Following a six-year tenure as an art teacher, he embarked on a new chapter in his artistic journey by relocating to South Africa in 2014.

Omogboye's extensive body of work predominantly employs a diverse range of mediums, including charcoal, pastel, acrylic, and oil on canvas, to convey his thoughts and ideas. His vibrant and dynamic creations have graced the walls of galleries and exhibitions in cities such as Lagos, Johannesburg, Franschhoek, and Théoule-sur-Mer, France. His signature style is characterized by bold and energetic brushwork, and his playful depictions of human anatomy have garnered acclaim both locally and internationally, solidifying his position as one of Nigeria's foremost artists.

At the core of Omogboye's artistic philosophy lies an unwavering belief in the intrinsic beauty that permeates every facet of existence. His artwork serves as a mirror reflecting life's imperfections while nurturing an appreciation for the authentic essence of being.

About Artist

"I share in my paintings what I hope others get to feel in their lives: awe, wonder, excitement, gratitude, appreciation, joy, hope, freedom, acceptance, and curiosity." 

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, who was 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."
