My name is Olugesun Michael Jimba. I was born in Kabba in the year 16th October 1972. I was born to the family of Ajayi Jimba in Kabba town/bunu L.G.A of Kogi state Nigeria.

I attended my primary and secondary education in Kabba Kogi state.

From my childhood I have been a talented artist that loves drawing and painting. After my education I now left for Osogbo to build my talent by enrowing at Nike art gallery. As a student there I acquired more knowledge in my field of art. I worked other group of Artists during that time to boost my career and expand my knowledge. Some of the Artists I worked with are:

  • OSA Art Gallery in Osogbo directed by PECCO. PECCO is specialized in painting sculpture, bead paintings, string paintings, etc
  • Mr. Sunday Oni: He is specialized in textile design like tie & dye, Batick textile printing, etc

I later left the art school after my graduation and traveled to Ibadan to work for a famous Artist for 3 years. Afterwards, I started on my own as a freelance Artist.

I can undertake ten different aspects of artwork such as; Oil painting, acrylics painting, sculpture painting, string painting, pen & ink on canvas, tie & dye, paper batick, etc.

I have sold my paintings to different organizations in Nigeria and abroad.

I have sold some of my paintings to embassies like American Embassy, Canadian High Commission, German Embassy, British High Commission, and Norwegian Embassy.

My paintings are now spread all across Nigeria.
