ART IN MY DNA
" Eyit Ima is a visual artist who specializes in Impressionism and Expressionism art. She attended Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Plant Science and Biotechnology in 2017.
Although she didn't study art in school that didn't stop her from fuelling her passion for art. She continued to self-develop her craft, learning how to connect her works with her environments and emotions. In 2018, her artistic breakthrough happened in Gombe State, after she presented to Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo a portrait of him, and also to the Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Suleiman Kazure, a portrait of him during his visit to Gombe that same year. In 2020, she took part in the Artmosphere speed competition, Abuja. Where she got to the semi-finals.
She also took part in the Reconexpo in 2020, where she exhibited her works on covid. And her collections were sold out. In 2021, she started a mini-campaign project in Abuja which she called the ""Voice It Out Campaign "". To her, it was a way of reaching out to the young ones who have undergone a series of domestic violence and showing them the way, they can channel their unspoken thoughts into art enabling them to create a balance between their minds and their hearts.
In 2021, she collaborated with Mr Yui, the CEO of Nature House Furniture Abuja, where she has her artworks on display. She was also part of an Awarded Project by CWAY in February 2022. Her artworks was exhibited in Australia in the Cool Change Contemporary Art Gallery in partnership with TAB Studios.
As she grows into the World of Art she has embraced, her motto is "The beginning and the end of life is Art"
