I’m Oyedele Adedokun Isaac (people call me Doks the artist)
I’m a self taught artist who picked up a regular Biro as a medium to create hyperrealist portraits.
Just how amazing what this writing material could do, I guess that’s the beauty of it all.
A lot of things inspire my works, mainly the society and a blend of deep emotions; I’m an apprentice in studying psychology. The title of this piece is “THE EDGE OF NINETEEN”. which depicts the unavoidable reality of growing up in Nigeria which people verbalize “the struggle don begin be dat”
The work is inspired by millions of youths in Nigeria and their battle against admission, jobs and social freedom.
The piece means a lot because it speaks the awful reality youths have to face will moving towards adolescent in Nigeria.
I show great interests in making people connect to my work, not just appreciatively, but also to wrap themselves around the psychology which we all take part in.
I’ve done quite a few amount of works over time which are on my Instagram page @Doks_art.
Check them out please, they are quite spectacular!!!
