About Daniel Pengrapher

Daniel “Pengrapher” Oshundaro (born December 6, 1997) is a highly decorated Nigerian artist whose work spans multiple disciplines including polyester figurines, figurative abstract paintings, sculpture, and creative photography. His artistic practice intricately weaves together his personal beliefs, aspirations, and unique personality, which are deeply embedded in each piece he creates. Oshundaro’s art serves as a medium for expressing his thoughts and experiences, drawing inspiration from his surroundings and often referencing classical compositions and vintage imagery. He employs a rich palette, bold lines, varied textures, and symbolism to convey his messages, primarily using mediums such as oils, acrylic, acrylic sprays, and emulsions.

Oshundaro earned his BA in Creative Art from the University of Lagos, Nigeria, and furthered his studies with a BA in sculpture from the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, Serbia. He currently holds a master’s degree from the University of Novi Sad at the Academy of Arts. Recently awarded the ERASMUS+ scholarship, he is continuing his education at the Academy of Fine and Applied Arts in Bratislava, Slovakia.
