Ibim Cookey is a Port Harcourt-based Pencil Artist, globally recognized for his Photo Realistic Art, in and outside Nigeria.
He is also an Ambassador to the Rivers State Ministry of Culture & Tourism. He has just shared some disappointments about the denizens who patronize him within his city Port Harcourt.
The pencil genuis took to his social media page. There, he expressed pain as to how his works are priced here for far less than one-eighth the price they go for abroad. Here’s what he wrote:
“Port Harcourt People never cease to Amaze me, you go online and see my works showcasing in a gallery Abroad for $2000 and you Screen shot it and come to my Dm and be pricing me the same work for 15,000 naira, Do you know That it is Rainy Season and Thunder is just moving around looking for who to fire?”
