Nigerian artist Segun Aiyesun

“Art has no bounds. If you control it, it dissipates and is lost, ’cause it wants to be free, it wants to flow and change and grow and reproduce like a living thing. Art lives and gives life. Without it we are just a bunch of wanderers without form, without purpose, without hope. Art is our definition and we cannot but embrace and live it.”

Nigerian artist Segun Aiyesan (b. 1971) is a self-taught artist from Benin City. He graduated from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria in 1995. He is a highly prolific international artist who draws inspiration from his lived experiences.
