Nigeria: Nigerian Artists Possess Great Talents And Potentials – Top Indian Artist


Shanta Roy, an Indian artist says Nigerian artists have incredible abilities and possibilities to play at the worldwide stage.

Roy made this known in a interview on Sunday in Abuja.

The exceptionally appraised Indian artist with ace degree in Fine Art said Nigerian specialists were awesome in the workmanship, communicating her awe at their level of contributions to her fine art.

“I like fine arts by Nigerian specialists; however some accomplish a greater amount of watching individuals, things and draw; notwithstanding, they have awesome gifts and possibilities.

“They can learn a little bit of artistry or study more online and work on monumental images and not pictures alone.


“This will make them improve and become better; however, I respect their talents and potentials,” she said.

She noted that history showed that Nigeria and India had similar artistic characteristics, stressing that the two are originally into more of sculpture unlike Europeans who are more into painting.

On her latest master piece at the Indian High Commission titled “Meeting India in Abuja”, Roy said the mural mosaic work requested by the commission took her about two months to complete.

“Some of the Nigerian artists that assisted me on the work which has 120 square meter area were so helpful and nice; they are fast learners with great potentials.

“The work seeks to bring a piece of India to Nigeria when we celebrated India at 70. About 500,000 pieces of tiles were used to create the image.

“It depicts India’s unity in diversity and its unique combination of cultures, religions, languages and development, which is similar to that of Nigeria,” Roy said.
