Where should i start from hmmm my name is Dare but my friends call me Zamani which am also i also love the name after my noticing my skills and talent in Face Painting, Art Design and Freelance Cartoonist.
I have been waiting for this opportunity after hearing a lot from some of the steemian in my neighborhood. As an artist that design cartoon, paint face for friend, children, and group street dancer for some month now and also do art work designing; creating funny face for my friend is what I do most time for my friend in neighborhood.
MY ART CAREER
Am from Lagos, Nigeria born and bred in the most popular city in Nigeria, Lagos as a kid have always been on the street, having fun with my friend painting face for them drawing there carton face and funny face.
After a group of dancer notice my talent and were interested it they assigned me as there face painter for any occasion there were to perform. After assigning me for this job I was so happy and started believing in myself and now take art as a God choosing job for me.
Not quite long on this I got a call by a Food Company “INDOMIE” after seen some of my art work and face painting, they were amaze with it and decide to invite me to a program they organize for some school children tag “Grassroots Culture and Art celebration” which I was invited to paint face for the children in addition to make the celebration glamorous. it was fun this are some of the picture of that day
This was the limelight to me as a kid for a big food company like “INDOMIE” inviting me to paint face in is not a mere fit and since that time have put more effort in improving my skills and trying to update myself with old and latest face painting design. Though has a kid have never get to meet a great singer Fela Kuti of Nigeria but have check some of his band video performance and have seen a lot of work put in by his face paint designer
