About the SeekProject
The SeekProject is an avenue for me to make my art visible and to add more art to the world. Its a platform for self initiated and commisioned work, creative independence and growth.
The Seekproject is also a path for me to collaborate with other artists and brands that have values and culture similar to mine.
Presently, what I do cover these areas: print Media, Illustration, Murals, logo and identity design, apparel and Footwear design.
The SeekProject is currently manned by Karo Akpokiere.
About Karo Akpokiere
I love to draw and I am deeply interested in how these drawings can be applied to different surfaces as a way to make them accessible and visible facilitating connections with and inspiring people in the process.
The drawings I make are created using traditional and/or digital processes and are indicative of my desire to combine different 'cultural' elements in other to create art that is universally appealing and reflective of my interests in textile motifs, the graffiti aesthetic, t-shirt graphics, sneakers, advertising, character design and geometry.
