Victoria Makinde

Painter, 1999, Lagos, Nigeria

I explore art through different medium,I paint mostly female figures because I have found it more interesting and intriguing. seeing how women tend to cope and survive during hardship. The expressions of my subjects are quite docile yet compelling as to the human reaction to true love and encounters of the emotions that comes after. Women plays an important role in the family and the society at large. My works are also a way of telling the world that women deserves more than just being tied to the kitchenette roles. the society needs to give more accolades and
acknowledgment to the achievements of women.
