Data Oruwari is a self taught illustrator and graphic designer. As a young girl growing up in Lagos, Nigeria – Data watched her father meticulously put pen to paper to forge beautiful images. This is how she fell in love with Illustration.
Data’s work can best be described as monochrome and intricate. Using mostly a micropen and pencil, she draws patterns, lines and dots that set focus on African subjects. Her work is storytelling void of words or color, where the subject is transformed from something familiar to something peculiar, but all appealing at the same time. She is inspired by tattoo ink artists and hopes that someday people appreciate her work to have it as art on their skin.
