Aiyesan Segun

Segun’s fascination has been with nature and colours. This enticed him to exercise with drawings and paints during his childhood.  This preoccupation influenced him into collecting comics and then trying to recreate the characters.  His love for art engaged his time and a distinctive talent was nurtured and later blossomed into a lifetime career.

 Segun was born on 18 March 1971 in Benin City. And was a graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife (1995).
