Obi is an aspiring artist from Spotswood College. His enjoyment comes from drawing and illustration. His stylised characters and creatures are distinctive to his style. Obi draws from random and wild imagination to create each of his artworks.

The challenge of creating at a larger scale for this exhibition was an interesting battle, between smudging and accidentally painted sleeves becoming a daily experience. This has inspired him to go even bigger in his work.

Obi enjoyed working with Resene paint to achieve a smoother texture and greater depth and vibrancy in colour throughout his work.
