Christian Allison is a mechanical engineer turned hyper-realism artist who grew up in Lagos State, Nigeria, who has always found himself drawn to art despite working in a different field after school. He seeks to be remembered as one who documented the lifestyle, historic culture, and historical moments in the lives of Black people at large. His art brings about questions, emotions and draws the audience in through the vivid expressions on the face of his works.
"I would like to be seen as one of the artists that successfully documented African culture in its diluted form, there are some of our cultures that are gradually fading away. I want to be seen as one of those artists that we're able to document the time in which I lived."
