Lost ID 1, 2019
Using pencil as a medium I tend to portray my subjects in a way that task the mind of the audience causing them to think and put themselves in the shoes/situation of the subject character. My art identifies the subject as a wanderer, someone in search of his or her true identity.
The series explores confusion in thoughts, fantasies, reality and wandering. It is an emotional state portrayed in expression. Lost identity reflects on the subject as not visible to reality. The subject struggles to find and be found as his mind is perceived to be under the influence of something that drives it away from the external.
Talut Kareem-Black is a young contemporary artist. Born March, 1994. He studied Mass communication at Moshood Abiola Polytechnic where he got his first degree and furthered his education in pursuit of a B.A. in Visual Art from the prestigious University of Lagos.
His love and enthusiasm for art has been evident from his childhood as he would always draw and paint in any book with empty pages. This initiated his interest and decision to study art after acquiring first degree in Mass communication . He is a self-taught artist who specializes in drawing. He explores the medium of pencils (charcoal and graphite) on paper and canvas to portray his subjects using the technique of facial distortion (blur) in his drawings which he adopted as his style.
