EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH DOKUN 

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND?

MY NAME IS OYEDELE ADEDOKUN, I GREW UP IN OSOGBO,OSUN STATE

I AM 19 YEARS OLD, I CAME FROM A FAMILY OF 6, I HAVE 3 SIBLINGS WHO ARE ALL CREATIVE AND TALENTED IN THEIR OWN WAYS..AM A NERD GROWING UP AND AN ENTHUSIAST I TAKE MY PASSION VERY SERIOUSLY AND IMMUNED TO DISCOURAGEMENT

 

WHEN DID YOU START DRAWING AND WHAT INSPIRED YOU?

 

I STARTED DRAWING WHEN I WAS VERY LITTLE..BASICALLY, I MIGHT SAY MY TWO BIG BROTHERS INSPIRED ME BECAUSE WHEN WE WERE YOUNG WE LOVED ACTION MOVIES, COMIC CHARACTER AND CARTOONS. THAT INSPIRED US THREE BECAUSE THEY ARE COLOURFUL AND AWESOME SO WE’D TRY AND DRAW THEM…THEY SET THE PACE, SO THE LITTLE ME WANTED TO DRAW TOO..BUT I DEVELOPED MYSELF PRETTY WELL OVER TIME AND MY TWO BROTHERS ARE STILL ARTISTS BUT IN DIFFERENT ASPECTS

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO PICK UP BIRO AS A MEDIUM?

TO BE FRANK, NON AVAILABILITY OF ART MATERIALS IN OSOGBO GAVE ME A REASON TO NOTICE BIRO AND THEN I DISCOVERED A HYPERREALISTIC BIRO ARTIST CALLED OSCAR CHUKS KNOWN POPULARLY AS @OSCARUKONU_ART…SEEING HIS WORKS MADE ME OPENED MY MOUTH IN AWE AND PRAISE WHAT THIS CHEAP BIRO COULD DO, I STUDIED MAINLY HIS WORKS TO LEARN ALL ABOUT IT, SO THAT WAS HOW I PICKED IT UP, I STARTED FEBRUARY, 2017 NOW AM WORKING MY WAY UP INTO HYPERREALISM

WHAT ARE THE CHALLANGES YOU FACE AS AN ARTIST?

I COULD GO ALL DAY JUST TO TALK ABOUT CHALLENGES FACED BY REGULAR PEOPLE HERE IN NIGERIA NOT TO TALK OF ARTISTS…THERE IS JUST A LOT

THE ENVIRONMENT IS ONE MAJOR BECAUSE A CONDUCIVE ENVIRONMENT IS NEEDED FOR YOU TO GROW CREATIVELY..MOST TIMES I COULDN’T DRAW AT NIGHT BECAUSE THERE IS NO ELECTRICITY AND SOME OTHER DAYS NOISE POLLUTION

PSYCHOLOGICALLY FOR ME THE CHALLENGE I STRUGGLED WITH IS PEOPLE HERE NOT KNOWING THE VALUE OF MY BIRO WORKS NOT KNOWING HOW MUCH EFFORT,TIME AND ENERGY INVESTED IN IT AND ALSO GETTING THEM TO SHOW INTEREST IS A BRAWL..LITTLE TO NONE CAN AFFORD TO COMMISSION AND APPRECIATE IT…AM PRAYING FOR A BETTER AFRICA

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD FOR YOU, WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN THE NEXT 2 YEARS?

 

NO ONE KNOWS TOMORROW THAT’S WHY I PRAY TO GOD TO SPARE OUR LIVES AND TO PREVENT BAD THINGS THAT MIGHT HINDER OUR PROGRESS..

WELL, TWO YEARS FROM NOW I WOULD LOVE TO SEE MYSELF IN A HIGHER PLACE AS AN ARTIST, EXPLORING OTHER MEDIUMS.. I’VE GOT A LOT ON MY PLATE REALLY…AM ALSO WORKING TOWARDS GOING INTO ACTING AND FILM MAKING, IT IS NEXT ON MY TO-DO LIST BECAUSE I’VE ALWAYS HAD A THING FOR ACTING, HAVE DISPLAYED A FEW DRAMA BACK IN SCHOOL AND PEOPLE ENCOURAGE ME TO GO FOR IT PROFESSIONALLY..IT IS A PART OF ME WHICH I DON’T PLAN ON SWEEPING AWAY AND ALSO MOVIE MAKING IS ALSO AN ART

SO I’D DO JUST FINE, BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN SELF DEVELOPMENT AND PASSION

AS LONG AS IT IS A CRAFT I WILL IMPROVE.

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY TO YOUR FANS?

 

I AM A SIMPLE GUY, PEOPLE USUALLY REGARD ME AS FUNNY AND M A GUY YOU WOULD LOVE TO HAVE AROUND..AM A MOVIE FAN, MOVIES ARE A PART OF ME SO I CAN’T DO WITHOUT THEM..AM FULL OF ENERGY I DON’T GIVE UP ON THINGS EASILY, AM MENTALLY TOUGH AND ALSO HAVE TIME TO THINK ABOUT OTHERS.

I CALL MYSELF A MOTIVATIONAL COACH AND WRITER, I LOVE TO MOTIVATE, WANT TO PUBLISH A BOOK SOMEDAY..

TRYING MY BEST EVERYDAY TO MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE..

WHAT ARE THINGS THAT ARE MISUNDERSTOOD ABOUT ARTISTS?

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH!…MOST PEOPLE USUALLY THINK ARTISTS ARE WEIRD,DIRTY AND ROUGH, THEY DON’T BARB THEIR HAIR, THEY ARE NOT FASHIONISTAS AND ARE ONLY GOOD AT WHAT YOU SEE THEM DO..

I’D SAY THAT IS ABSOLUTELY WRONG BECAUSE M NOT NOT LIKE THAT, I TAKE CARE OF MYSELF, I LOVE TO ROCK DIFFERENT HAIRSTYLES AND I LOVE FASHION AND AM NOT CLOSE TO BEING WEIRD OR LONELY..I HAVE A HIGH REGARD FOR TASTE AND I BLEND WELL WITH ANY KIND OF PEOPLE.

I AM MULTI DIMENSIONAL I AM GOOD IN A LOT OF THINGS

I HAVE ALSO MET WITH SOME ARTISTS TOO WHO ARE AWESOME,NEAT,BRIGHT AND INTERESTING.
