Ndubuisi Sopuruchi is a 16-Year-Old badass designer who goes by the Art name Isokorevieno.
Based in Lagos, Nigeria, 16-Year-Old Ndubuisi creates Afrocentric art with a focus on neonness that makes selected parts of her art pop. Her work evokes a slight sense of glamour in you while reinforcing the environment that she is immersed in.
There’s something about Ndubuisi’s work that makes you get high on a love for Africa. She depicts a mix of African heritage with the contemporary, without overdiluting.

NABILA “My story?Why do you city people think everyone from the village has a story. What if I’m just a regular Fulani girl, living as the day goes by…. ….. I wish I was, I wish I didn’t have to cover up my scars under, this scarf( well it isn’t so obvious I’m covering something with a scarf because I’m in Kano), I wish I was just a normal and regular girl. I was 7 when mama sold me off to chief, I say sold off because that is what it seemed like, we were poor, he bought her luxurious things. I wonder why she didn’t marry him, why it had to be me, I mean they were age mates. 10 years later I got frustrated, One night I told him I was going to run away, cause I was tired, he laughed “my darling you’re so funny, silly girl, I own you now, don’t you know this”. I became so bitter, and filled with hate for him. Well that was 2weeks ago. Can I go now? I’ve had a long day, who knew burials were so hard to plan.” . “Regards to your husband”. . . “Haha, what husband?” Illustration by @ndubuisi_s Photoshop cs6. @mabo_duke thanks for the name 💛 . . . . . . . . #photoshop #hausa #fulani #poetry #isokorevieno #art #cs6 #strangerthings #drawing #illustration #sketch #art #digitalart #photoshop #painttoolsai #sai #anime #manga #painting #digital #girl #artstyle #comics #doodle #lineart #fun #concept #conceptart #characterart #thirdeye #pyramid

Dear Digital Artists… Always paint your works in a greyscale before adding color, just take a look at my life(swipe, there are two pictures)😭😭😭😭, I thought that work was fine, it looks like clay now 😂😂😂😂😂😂. Plus you don’t have to listen to people all the time, if you like something yellow and someone says it’s better blue, except the person is a client, or you think it is better blue, LEAVE IT YELLOW!!! You’re the artist not the person. Never post your works immediately you’re done painting 😭😭😭😭 I know we get excited, but please,leave the work for like two days, (excitement blinds you 😂😂😂) try different effects, redo the work if you have to Biko, if you’re like “let me just post it like that” please don’t !!! don’t be too tired . This work isn’t the best yet, but at least it is better than it was before😭😂😂😂. Have a nice day, plus abeg😂😂😂😂 if you liked this picture before, just like it again, thank you Truly WE LEARN EVERYDAY . . . . #photoshop #summer #strangerthings2 #incredibles #isokorevieno #art #cs6 #strangerthings #drawing #illustration #sketch #art #digitalart #photoshop #painttoolsai #sai #anime #manga #painting #digital #girl #artstyle #comics #doodle #lineart #fun #concept #conceptart #characterart #thirdeye #pyramid
