Women of honour (Oil on canvas ) by artist Sam Ovraiti
Widely known as the most expressive water colourist in Nigeria, Sam Ovraiti has the ability to not control the medium he works with but instead to speak the language of the medium, letting the medium dictate the artwork. The result is a purified, beautified reality. Due to his outstanding excellence in art, a scholarship in honour of Sam Ovraiti was set up at the famous Auchi Polytechnic where he graduated with distinctions and several awards. With several solo exhibitions and an extensive number of group shows in Nigeria, Europe and USA, Sam Ovraiti is one of the most accomplished artists of his generation.
