I would also like to know more about other African tribes and their art, this could be their symbols, arts and sculptors that I would like translates in my work at some point. I share this studio with a fellow artist and it is nice to have someone to exchange and share ideas with. First launched into the world in 2014, the original Raven was the culmination of two years of discovery, risk taking, trial and error, and stubborn persistence. I am actually bad at mingling. Newland is a member of the American Bar Association and is admitted to practice in California, Georgia and New York. I met Benjamin on a sunny day in his Copenhagen basement studio, I was positively surprised by how calm and open he was.

Nigeria is so rich in traditional arts so my legacy would be to incorporate the Nigerian arts in my own work to produce exceptional pieces of high standard and quality That is the legacy I would like leave behind. This could not be further from the truth. We love sneakers, so we make them ourselves. I also had gained more experience working as store manager which gave me some business insight that has become a valuable skill to have as an independent artist. Newland also has extensive experience in investment fund formation, corporate restructurings, privatizations, corporate governance advisory work and other business matters. His calm nature could fool you into into thinking he would rather skip the chit-chat and get on with business, his art. I applied at an animation school back then in Viborg, Jutland but was not accepted, the reason being: I was not technically precise in my drawings and this was one of the requirements.

Social media, Instagram is also my way of networking. I have achieved that goal. For more on Benjamin´s work please check Benjamin. It is difficult to penetrate the Danish Elite within the arts. Thanks and love to modern dancer Benedicte Ramfjord, painter Benjamin Abana, and artist and floral designer Julius Iversen of Tableau gallery in Copenhagen. I am not sure if people are aware. Do you hope to leave any legacy behind? It´s all white subjects painted or portrayed.

My dad is Nigerian and my mom is Danish. I do not have what one would call a formal education at an art school but I always drew a lot as a child. I hope to combine what I learn with what I do currently. I have managed to build a base of network that sometimes proven to be valuable with regards to selling my art. I was also in awe of the type of work displayed around. So I know networking is also important.

I look up to artists like Michael Angelo, Da Vinci for inspiration because they mastered their art. So there is a gap of documenting black people or people of colour without making a political statement but then everything is political, right? He received his undergraduate degree, summa cum laude, from Columbia University, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. I am still learning to work with abstract motifs. . At some point I wanted to be film animator.

In one of my works I chose to paint Nina Simone for a tribute concert by singer Maria Thandie recently held in Copenhagen. This lead me to move to Copenhagen. I attended a youth education where I got the chance to take a course in animation, sadly the school shut down a month after I had started. Four years and hundreds of sneaker designs later, the thing that inspired us then still drives us today: a love for sneakers, plain and simple. So, the experiences and skills I had acquired then have become very useful in what I do today.
