Artful Geometry From Karo Akpokiere

Karo Akpokiere has a style that is all his own. His art is very distinct and amazingly, he manages to merge abstract, geometry, and culture to create something beautiful.
His passion for art started as far back as he can remember. Art is in him, and is a core part of who he is. But he was inspired to make his art a lot more than something to just keep him busy. So in 1998, he plunged into his work inn full force after hearing various word like 'your talent is a pointer to your purpose' and 'not everyone is meant to be a doctor, lawyer, or engineer'. He realized that he had a purpose, an innate ability to create. Hence, he drew more, learned more, and drew again.

Now, in addition to commissions, Karo has self-initiated projects to keep his creative juices flowing. He runs The Seek Project, which is a website that provides a platform for him to showcase his work and projects, as well as collaborate with other artists. Karo uses both traditional and digital processes in creating his art. Of particular interest to him is putting his work onto media like t-shirts, sneakers, and as graffiti. Presently, he works on print media, illustrations, murals, logos, identity designs, apparels, and footwear designs.

Murals and graffiti

Tables, posters, t-shirts, and footwear designs too

The thing is, success comes when you create in your image i.e. when your work is based on the innate talent you were born with. Karo does exactly that, so it's no wonder that he's climbing from success to success.
