Starting at an early age of 6, Arinze had always been enthusiastic about drawing realistic portraits on paper. Being exposed to his family’s paper buisness, Arinze grew to love paper and pencils as his toys at a very tender age. Over the years He gradually taught himself how to master both Pencils and Paper in harmony as a medium to express himself through what he calls his three P’s namely Patience, Practice and Persistence. These have guided him throughout his journey as an artist. Working in a genre of art known as Hyper-realism, Arinze drives at creating art that triggers a degree of emotional connection between his viewers and his subjects. Also using his works as a medium for social and political activism, highlighting pressing matters both in his community and worldwide, matters including Modern slavery , feminism and others.
Arinze’s debut group show held at the Omenka Gallery Lagos, Nigeria in 2016 and his debut international exhibition at Scope art show during Miami Art week 2017.
