Issues that affect contemporary living largely influence Ibe’s art. Always willing to push creative boundaries, Ibe enjoys experimenting and also uses interdisciplinary approaches for his art creations in his search for new experiences.
Working as an Art Director in advertising for 15 years alongside his art practice also gave him rare insight into and balance between creating authentic art expression and brand storytelling before going into full-time studio practice after his agency stint. Combined with his proficiency and stunning talent as a Painter, Fashion Illustrator, Art Director, Calligraphist and Designer, Ibe is at the forefront of a new generation of illustrative creators. In his spare time, apart from duties as a father and husband, Ibe volunteers as Chief Coordinator Studio Programs for Girl Child Art Foundation – a non-profit organization.
