Solomon Omogboye is a humble, contemporary impressionist painter born in 1982 in Lagos. His style in painting is like woven long linear strokes of colour, or light. Often the airy veil of dramatic light moving in air or ground envelopes the strong composition of his forms. Lively paintings of figures are characterized by energetic bold strokes layered in thick patches on canvas to depict playful expressions of human anatomy. Painting is really a practice of focusing intentions moment to moment and that is really what life is about. He shares in his paintings what he hopes others get to feel in their lives: awe, wonder, excitement, gratitude, appreciation, joy, hope, freedom, acceptance and curiosity.
