"Considering the consistency of his works. Practicing one technique for over 48 years affords the privilege of keen mastery. It was a surprise when I google up my dad to find several mentions of him. Art blogs, auction sites, Pinterest, journals. They had his name and his old works...very old works. Yet they had something to say about him. Something he hasn't read. Wheeew, dad is famous. Eeeermmh, but that was almost 3 decades ago" Gbenga said.
