Taiwo Isimi - Facing Fears
(graphite, charcoal, pastel)
My experiences through these hard times drove me into expressing my feelings through the movement “hyperrealism” which I have been following since 2011. My works are an expression of life. They are fun, lively, contemporary, solemn, and thought-provoking. But beyond all these, I strive for my pieces to represent art at its best”.
