ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Nigeria-based Toyin Omolowo and his works. It traces back how Omolowo's art life began in early childhood as he scribbled sketches on walls and assembled patterns from objects at hand. He credits his father, who strongly influences his creative exuberance. It highlights the many awards reaped by Omolowo at the Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Arts in Kobe, Japan in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the post-earthquake restoration of the museum.
