Solomon was introduced to drawing as a child and encouraged by his mother, who was a teacher. He worked extensively as an art instructor in secondary schools in Lagos after his graduation and also practiced art from his home studio. His paintings are a reflection of his thoughts, inspiration, and ideas. He mainly uses charcoal, pastel, acrylic and oil on canvas to portray his ideas in visual form by creating beauty and thus making a personal statement.
