By exploring aspects of visual and digital archiving that show and expose the idiosyncrasies and aesthetics of the city Lagos. He is an advocate for positive and rich storytelling via the digital media as a tool for reorientation and pathways to new dialogue and knowledge acquisition that create a seamless balance between the world of technology, art and new media. Voracious and inquisitive, he negotiates his chosen and beloved subject - Lagos -with astuteness. His rich portfolio on a single subject helped build his visual aesthetics which revolve around narrative and documentary style photography with intermittent bouts of conceptual elemental infusions via poetry, collage and digital manipulations. Logo was in London for his first Solo exhibition and a month arts residency with the Future Assembly (2016).
