Apooyin Mufutau lives and works as a full-time professional studio artist in Lagos where he was born. He obtained an HND with distinction in Painting from the Yaba College of Technology, Lagos in 2002, and has won several awards to his credit. Apooyin was a founding member of Koncordance Art Group. Mufutau has a strong passion for water, which is why most of his paintings feature sea, rivers and lakes. Prominent among his works is a series of paintings on Oko-Baba, Makoko waters and other riverine areas in Lagos and Nigeria at large. His interest lies largely in the rendition of ripples and reflections of objects in the water and on a wet ground during and after rain. Mufu incredibly paints the ripples so real to the point of creating an illusion of moving water on his canvas. He has participated in several group exhibitions at home and abroad, and has equally executed notable commission jobs while his works adorn many private and public places.
