Ibim Cookey

Ibim Cookey is a photo realistic pencil artist who comes from the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. He is a graduate of architecture and an award-winning artist and Art Ambassador to the Rivers State Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

His works are primary done with graphite and charcoal pencils on paper and his art has been linked with various exhibitions within Nigeria and internationally (South Africa, England, Niger Republic among others). He is known for creating drawings that look photorealistic. These are extremely detailed drawings.

Ibim refers to his art as ‘AfroEmofusion’ coined from Afro Emotional Fusion as his drawings capture character as portraits of Africans expressing everyday emotions and sociality. He works and lives in Port Harcourt, Rivers State Nigeria.

Ibim joins the collective and extends our reach to artists overseas as we connect to other creative communities. His addition to the team... provides a hint of what's to come.
