Olutayo Aje (1966) -- Fine Art
I decided to venture into a career in visual arts in 1983 after completing my primary and secondary education, that saw me excel at little else than producing scores of little sketches all over my subject notes, class desks, and indeed any space I could find to draw on (including the air).
Luckily, I had the encouragement of an art teacher at both levels, and so it was not a difficult decision to develop my skills further at the university.
I decided to be an artist because I have always been fascinated with the endless possibilities of what the creative soul, mind and body can produce from little or nothing.
