Temitope Oke is a young working class lady in her twenties. She has developed a unique ability to bringing objects to life via her skills with the pencil. All of her arts are capable of invading your mind and leaving you with wonder.
Check out these few and also what she has to say.
I’m inspired by nature, like sometimes I just draw the things I see. And music, it speaks to me. I just listen to a song and it makes me want to put my pencil on paper.
I never had to learn to draw. It’s something I’ve been doing ever since I learnt how to hold a pencil, although it started with me drawing circles on the back of my school notes and making crooked lines on the wall in the house.
Basically, seeing everything as a combination of shapes helps me draw effortlessly. When people see a complex picture, I just see many shapes I have to put together to make a beautiful drawing.
