Silas was born in Abuja, Nigeria. He started art as a child, drawing funny cartoons and pictures, but then went into art more professionally in 2016 after graduating with a national diploma from the Polytechnic. His advice to new artists is “perseverance and constant practice”.
This brilliant artist captures life on canvas. His oil portraits capture the fluidity of life as he integrates water into many of his images.
I believe the society speaks- This voice inspires my art, which evaluates, interrogates and challenges socio-political structures and issues within the society.
