Young, talented and super hot, Data Oruwari, describes herself as a “user experience architect and a visual illustrator.” Humble much, because to the outside world, she actually is a veritable wizard with the micro pencil. Gaze upon Data’s artworks at your own peril, for you maybe drawn into them and never come back. Data stands out as an artist not just because of the beauty and intricacy of her work, but also because of the fact that she is a completely and utterly self – taught artist. We spent some time with her at our Lagos studio and excerpts of our convos can be found below along with her bewitching art. Hit play on the video above to watch our full chat.
She furthermore explains the not-so-easy road to being a self taught artist saying;
Teaching myself has been the greatest challenge because, here in Nigeria you don’t have access to self help videos. I had to rely on Youtube, Skill Share and external resources to teach myself the things I know.
