Born in Edo state Nigeria, Simon Ojeaga is a figurative artist whose works are characterized by repetitive and rhythmic lines. These lines form the bodies and figures in his paintings.
Having graduated from Auchi polytechnic school of Art and
Industrial Design in 2019, he wet on to complete a five week residency at OYASAF Foundation established by
Prince Yemisi Shyllon.
In 2021 he was amongst the selected artists for the
Beyond the canvas' mentorship program with Ndidi
Emefiele, and also mentored with Ayoola Gbolahan, a mentorship organized by AMG Projects.
Simon's works are highly detailed, filled with small rhythmic broken lines in various directions, his way of interpreting forms and movement.
"The philosophy behind my work is a complex build up with rhythmic lines of the anatomy and a limited palette, to compliment it and give it that simplistic appearance. That is what I believe humans and our environment are made up of."
