IYANDA BY VICTOR ORJI
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Victor is a rare talent. He is a graphic artist, illustrator, cartoonist and also the CEO of Artvantage Studios which focuses on harnessing and producing the best talent in art and animation.
HIS WORK: “Iyanda” is a Yoruba native name from the Southwestern region of Nigeria meaning “a selected being”.
The painting is the portrait of a young African boy with tribal marks and white chalk around his eyes and on his chin. The deductive meaning of the painting as implied from the chalk around his eyes and two vertical chalk marks on his chin is- no matter what my eyes can see I will always stand for the truth.
