Biographie

Oboh Mosses est un jeune illustrateur numérique qui vit et travaille à Lagos, au Nigeria. Sa passion pour l'art et l'expression créative a débuté à l'âge de sept ans. Oboh était un fan de nombreux artistes qu'il trouvait en ligne et travaillait sans relâche à son propre métier pour développer son style d'illustration. Ayant grandi au Nigeria, il a été difficile pour Oboh d'obtenir l'accord de ses parents pour devenir un illustrateur professionnel. Il leur a fallu du temps pour réaliser à quel point il était doué et pour accepter que sa passion pour l'art pouvait le mener à une carrière réussie d'illustrateur numérique.

Une entrevue avec

Oboh Moses

Who or what influenced your art when you were young?
Passion to create, I just had this undying love for art

Do you remember what your first artwork looked like? Do you still have it?
My artwork then looked like the 1820 version of Minecraft Lol! So bad I don’t have any of them with me.

Why did you choose illustration as your life’s work instead of, for example, filmmaking, law, or even medicine?
If there is something I do best, it is illustrating. Anything you can do with a minimal amount of effort is your dream and you shouldn’t joke with it. The passion for art made me choose art.

Did you study art in school?
Not at all, but I practise on my own most of the time.

Where does your inspiration come from; your impulse to make art? Do you have a source for your ideas?
Movies! I love movies so much, that is mainly where I get my ideas. Pinterest inclusive

How would you describe the process of creating art?
Creating art is a gradual process, it’s not something that should be rushed. Just trust the process and lower your expectations.

Do you have a favourite artist? What is it about that artist’s work you like?
Eric Anthony is my favourite, I really like the way he paints his subject and his choice of colours. He inspired me to start creating digital art.

If you could do something else, other than creating art, what would it be?
Probably programming, still learning though.

Do you remember your first set of paints, pens, or markers?
I didn’t use those, just a pack of pencils were enough for me.

Do you have a favourite artist supply, a favourite method, or favourite location, where you like to create artwork?
Favourite location? My room I guess.
