Could you tell us a little more about who you are and what you do?

I usually struggle to define myself but I will try. I am many persons; I am a visual artist, storyteller, aspiring social engineer, mystic, lover and father.

I love doing illustrations, digital painting, traditional painting, body painting, developing ideas for brands, and recently, I have discovered my passion for developing solutions and ideas for human development.

The 49th 366 Award goes to Aimuan Ogboghodor for his outstanding creative work.

Which of your projects are you most proud of and why?

The projects that I can say I am most proud of are

  1. The “Cosmic Plaque” digital painting( because it connected me back to my cultural roots),
  2. The Prince (because it was a great experiment fusing my traditional art background, my digital art skills and cultural elements)
  3. Create Naija (because it was my first social engineering project. It is my most nationalistic creation. I totally enjoyed visualising and publishing an idea for national development using branding and design

Where do you get your inspiration?

I get my inspiration from my life experiences, science, culture, music, people, and life in general.


And finally, if you died and were reincarnated as a song, what would that song be?
