About

Nigerian Artist, Abraham Ogunlende (Painterabe), is a contemporary painter, known for depicting colorful floral leaves meshed with bold black lines, as well as characters that reflect back culture.

With a business degree in Marketing from Philadelphia University, this self taught artist began making professional works in 2013, reflecting both his personal experiences, and pop culture.

Versatile in nature, Abraham’s paintings viewed collectively can be seen as an exploration of color and subjectivity, where he primarily explores these concepts through the use of natural elements and a cultural lens. With the placements of these elements and created characters in his paintings, he aims to communicate through a shared visual conversation.
