Born 1928 in Ile Ife, Nigeria. Began painting at an early age. Studied briefly in Nigeria before he was sent to the UK by the Nigerian Government to study art under a unique government art scholarship.

From 1961 to 1971, lived in the UK , occasionally attending art seminars, working on Obafemi Awolowo’s sculpture and painting. Retuned to lecture at the University of Lagos. Became the guiding light and mentor for an informal afro-surrealist school of art known as the Barber school.
