Rising young Nigerian artist, Aniebietabasi Ekong, who is blazing a creatively ingenious trail in the world of art has been tapped by CNN Africa for their lastest art and style feature.‘Baddieani‘, as he calls himself, is currently a student of the Rhode Island School of Design in America. He describes himself as a futuristic artist who makes simple, colourful and exciting portraits that can only be better appreciated by experiencing the art itself.In his interview with CNN, he explained about the origin of his art and brand. “I was taking the train with some friends in Toronto and one of them started taking picturesof me at different stops, posing in random corners. One friend hadn’t seen me for a while and while she was taking the pictures she said “guy you’re bad o! ahan baddie, ani.”Then I told her to repeat what she just said and I liked the sound of the name and how it made me feel. All my life I had been shying away from taking pictures and inspiring the world with original style, but that moment on the train when we were arguing about how to spell the newly created name, baddieani, gave me the confidence to embrace this skill.”He further shared about his amazing unconventional art and style inspiration. Explaning that his “art is trying to make people see the beauty in themselves, to hold on to that, and try to better themselves”.Photo Credit: Aniebietabasi Ekong
