MEET OLUWATOSIN AKINGBA THE FEMALE PENCIL ARTIST


Pencil Artistry is Tosin’s talent and a passion that speaks volume to her soul. Her inspiration comes from everything happening around her, from happiness to sadness to crime in the country, injustice, religion, depression, suicide, and so on. 

Name: Akingba Oluwatosin

Services:  Pencil Artististry

Education:   OND In Mass communication, BSc Mass communication

Business Idea: I had the talent for Art ever since I could hold a pencil as a child, I loved to recreate pictures on comic books, story books, magazines, newspapers simply anything with pictures, I quickly became popular in (primary and secondary) school, and I was known by both teachers and students, I would decorate the classroom with pictures drawn on cardboards using pencils and coloured Pencils but due to discouragement from people telling me to focus on my education and drop Art, I decided to study Mass communication and left Art behind.

I recently reconnected with my passion for Art, being that the talent never left me, I found myself drawing and started to practice by myself and by so doing I started to become better and better at drawing.

Driving Passion: I had a lot of difficulties growing up, from peer pressure to deprival to loneliness, my reconnection with Art feels like reconnecting with my very soul, I use Art to channel my feelings to the world. My drive for Art comes from everything happening around me, from happiness to sadness to crime in the country, injustice, religion, depression, suicide, and so on. 

Current Business Challenge: My major challenge and most pressing challenge is getting my talent recognized by people all over the world.

Another challenge is funds for getting drawing materials for my art.

Business Expansion Wish: To be known all across Africa and the world at large to make a name for myself just like Pablo Picasso, Berthe Morisot, Frida Kahlo,Tamara de Lempicka, Kehinde Whiley, Ken Nwadiogbu, Kelvin Okafor, Seyi Alabi and many other renowned Artists.
