We came across wonderful art by Sheyi Alabi, a Nigerian with remarkable artistic abilities and who works predominantly with graphite pencils and panels on chip-board. The artist showcases most of his art on Instagram under the account @sheyi_pencilz.

According to omenkagallery, Alabi who was born in 1985, holds a diploma in computer engineering from APTECH (2013). For him art began at an early age as this was his most natural expression.  In his drawings, he presents everyday imagery of children playing or reading, and recently started an important series on the negative effects of domestic violence on children.

Today we showcase the artist’s beautiful work.
