Sunshine Alaibe a young Art Historian from Nigeria, now based in London, who paints to express an inner creativity, Sunshine has a huge passion for creating artwork which is a direct reflection of her Nigerian heritage.

Inspired by the works of Lucien Freud and Tai-Shan Schierenberg, Sunshine creates portraits which represent a modern take on the Nigerian culture where positivity, strength and tradition prevails. In an attempt to eliminate the adverse effect of Nigeria’s political state, these portraits are meant to shine a light on the hope for the country and the hope for both Nigerian millennials and the older generation.
