Photographer : Kelechi Amadi-Obi

I saw these images and i thought i should share it with you guys ! its so creative and different .

They are shot by artist and photographer  Kelechi Amadi-Obi. He  is a major force in the creative scene in Nigeria. His passion for art pulsed strong in the seventies, even though his dad had deep misgivings regarding him building a career in the arts.

“My father was afraid; at the time being an artist wasn’t the most lucrative” Kelechi was influenced by the books he read in the library; they made quite an impression on him. “I was intrigued by the craftsmanship of Michelangelo, the ingenuity of Leonardo Da Vinci and the raw colours of Van Gogh.”

These formed his philosophy as an artist; “do the best that you possibly can and then do it better all over again, pursuit of perfection.” There is a certain wholesomeness and depth in Kelechi’s art, which gives a feeling of hope and positivity, when you view his work. “People could feel anything from looking at my work, this meant I had hit home with my message.”
