Aimuan Ogboghodor – “I am consciousness flowing with the river of life”

We talk to illustrator and digital designer Aimuan Ogboghodor.

This week The Creative Chair comes to you from Lagos, Nigeria where we’re getting to know Aimuan Ogboghodor, an up and coming illustrator and digital artist who has used a range of visual styles to communicate.

You can see more work from Aimuan on Behance, and we recommend that you keep an eye on his work as he’s sure to be working on some great things in the future.

Don’t forget, if you know someone who should be on The Creative Chair, you can nominate them.

Could you tell us a little more about who you are and what you do?

I usually struggle to define myself but I will try. I am many persons; I am a visual artist, storyteller, aspiring social engineer, mystic, lover and father.

I love doing illustrations, digital painting, traditional painting, body painting, developing ideas for brands, and recently, I have discovered my passion for developing solutions and ideas for human development.

Which of your projects are you most proud of and why?

The projects that I can say I am most proud of are

  1. The “Cosmic Plaque” digital painting( because it connected me back to my cultural roots),
  2. The Prince (because it was a great experiment fusing my traditional art background, my digital art skills and cultural elements)
  3. Create Naija (because it was my first social engineering project. It is my most nationalistic creation. I totally enjoyed visualising and publishing an idea for national development using branding and design

Where do you get your inspiration?

I get my inspiration from my life experiences, science, culture, music, people, and life in general.

And finally, if you died and were reincarnated as a song, what would that song be?
