LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
I am a Paper Collage artist, with an M.A(hons) in Art history (2019), which I obtained after my bachelor's degree in Fine Art from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, where I finished as the overall best in my department.
Stemming from my waste to wealth enthusiasm, I started creating figures with paper alongside pigments in 2012, but 2019 marked the advancement into hundred percent works with paper, after discovering that all shades and colours could in fact be gotten from paper. After my study on the positive impact of dynamic texture on mental health, in 2021, I started crumpling my paper instead of just pasting it.
On the 17th of October, 2019 I was invited by the Television Continental (TVC), Lagos, on to their "Wake-Up Nigeria" program, ( https://www.facebook.com/100002243357085/posts/2500123340072420/?app=fbl ) to talk about my paper works, which they saw posted on Facebook and found to be remarkable, while also, I have sold some works through Quintessence Gallery and participated in five major exhibitions within and outside Nigeria -
Experience 2014 @ Transcrup Hilton hotel Abuja;
Scapes and Forms 1 and 2 in ABU, Zaria;
Paper is Treasure by Ecoaware Gallery in India;
PASA Festival Exhibition in South Korea.
Out of one hundred and fifty applicants for the Artist Ladder Residency, held in Lekki, Nigeria, in December of 2021, I was privileged to be one of the five distinguished finalists - https://talkresidency.org/timothy-popoola/ .
