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.

In 2004 he was awarded the Guinness Top Three Award for Contemporary Artist in Nigeria.
