Your Weekly Dose Of Art: Karo Akpokiere

Karo Akpokiere is a Nigerian born and based artist whose work is set a little apart  from the conventional oil on canvas. He displays his drawings and illustrations through various media,  T-shirts being one of my favourite.

His work is informed by the desire to combine different cultural elements in other to create art that is universally appealing and reflective of his interests. He actively blends the graffiti aesthetic with textile motifs, t-shirt graphics, sneakers, advertising, character design and geometry.

Karo Akpokiere has embarked on a number of art projects, most of which portray the livelihood in Lagos, Nigeria.

Here’s a short walk through his gallery..
