Denison Yibowei (1982) -- Fine Art
I have always enjoyed the designing of automobiles with the feeling of respecting the principles of arts, precisely, with a passion that spells satisfaction.
I recall my first auto design, the excitement that I did it with, the love for it, the attention to detail, and always looking out for more results. Improving on already existing techniques, made me realize there is a goal to be achieved. That goal is to mirror client’s core values and mission. This can be achieved by digitizing images to meet current trends.
My key design accomplishment was the 2007 Mercedes Maybach series, voluntarily contributed to the company, and which was significantly improved on, to meet aesthetic formats of the firm. Also, I have recently improved on my design methods, by introducing the computer to achieve near completion.
Performance and finished look of the expected product can now be achieved with the use of available software such as the Adobe Photoshop series and Picasa.
In the light of the above, I always try to infuse abstract and cubistic patterns into all of my paintings, in a complex, philosophical interrogation, which seeks to explore the colour fragmentations that I chose to symbolise essential components of societal, cultural, religious and political significations, that instructs our differences and make-up.
I sometimes allow the use of flat colours, crude colours, scratches, drippings or palimpsests to undertone my precise messages for each researched paintings. In the use of fragmentation as a concept in my paintings, collective environmental distortions, religious or socio-political repulsiveness is addressed with multiple expectations of anticipatory shift in world consciousness.
Occasionally, my style is charged with the dynamism of the African indigenous symbols. This is as a result of connecting the viewer with a multilayered ancestry of the African-Spiritual co¬mpositions, equipped with a storyboard of philosophical abstraction. This is done with the stitching and patching which is synonymous with digital animation’s layering.
I equally try to globalise my paintings with honesty. Honesty with the global cry, which condemns crime, neglect, and deprivation, especially as it affects the Niger Delta regions of Nigeria, and then Diasporas. I try not to over beautify my paintings, so I can confidently achieve the ugly side of life’s experiences through the rough, unfinished attention to details.
I have also explored the idea of painting sensitive issues on glass. Yes, glass to suggest the fragility of global culture, arts, social and political issues. This is as a result to translate the delicate nature of life and well-being, if taken for granted.
I strive to highlight the purpose of global well being, sustained with a common bond, weaved with the saying, “a stitch in time saves nine.”

- I have executed the designing and completion of magazines, and advert bills for both political campaigns, and private businesses, via digital graphics, to meet with the demands of the trends.
- I also enjoy exploring new media’s, and techniques, to help achieve positive results when designing is concerned.
