"Paintings should not be seen solely as art work, but also as mirrors that reflect everyday life."
"I am Joseph Adibleku, a painter whose inspiration comes from social milieu and from colors. My style can be described as abstract. My desire to paint awakened in me at a tender age, and I can say it is a natural talent because I don't have any knowledge of anyone in my family who is into painting.
"I am the seventh born in a family of seven siblings and my parents have always encouraged me to paint. They put me through college to refine my skills. Since I graduated from college I have been living off the sales of my paintings. I sell my art works through different galleries. However this is still a great challenge for they often turn me away claiming I have yet to make a name for myself in the art world.
"Paintings should not be seen solely as art work, but also as mirrors that reflect everyday life. I use the palette knife, brushes and acrylic paints for my art work. I have exhibited my work locally, and currently I have three young people learning with me. I love to listen to good music and to travel for inspiration."
