Nigerian born Omogboye currently works from his studio in Johannesburg, South Africa. Solomon is a prolific artist with a style that has become well known, loved and is highly collectable. The artist’s application of fast drying acrylic paint on canvas by means of old credit cards or hard brushes allows for extreme control. Solomon applies contrasting bursts of colour with a marked confidence, creating an effervesce rendering multiple reflections of light.
Nothing is more beautiful than the innocent gaze of a child. To be cherished and protected, this image is a reminder of the vulnerability and exquisiteness of youth. With the child’d direct gaze, Omogboye invites the viewer to look closer and imagine their own creative interpretation.
