When I first saw these pictures on social media, I thought they were photos. As soon as realised they were actually paintings, I understood why social media was going crazy over them!

The oil paintings by Lagos-born Nigerian artist Oresegun Olumide, is definitely making us all take note of Nigerian artists. Working as a professional artist since 2005, water features prominently in Oresegun’s work because “water has no enemy”. The African art scene is taking shape and reaching beyond the shores of the continent. African artist are having their say.
