Sam Ovraiti received an MA in Fine Art from the University of Benin, before he developed his beautiful style centring around his use of colour. He has built a reputation as arguably the foremost water colour painter in Nigeria; painting market crowds, farms, and the landscapes and seascapes of Lagos and its inhabitants. Ovraiti has also worked with oils on canvas throughout his career, by creating cubist-inspired depictions of the human body.
Sam Ovraiti is an award winning artist whose work has been displayed at the Quintessence Gallery, Lagos, Nigeria; Galleria Romania, (annual pastel exhibition), Ikoyi, Lagos, Nigeria; and in private collections globally. In 2004 he was awarded the Guinness Top Three Award for Contemporary Artist in Nigeria.
