In the realm of art, where the boundaries of imagination are nonexistent, and creativity flows freely on every canvas, certain artists rise above the rest. One such luminary is Gbenga Gabriel, affectionately known as Gahbrivah, a contemporary artist whose name is etched into the annals of creativity through his extraordinary murals, graffiti, and doodles.
With a decade of artistic experience characterized by an unwavering passion for self-expression, Gahbrivah’s journey serves as a testament to drawing inspiration from the world that surrounds him. His philosophy is elegantly simple: God is the ultimate artist, and the essence of nature, as well as blank canvases, serve as his driving force.
Specializing in murals, graffiti, and doodles, Gahbrivah stands out as a true artistic innovator. His creations pulsate with emotion, igniting profound conversations, and embellishing streets and alleys with vibrant colors and captivating forms. His work transcends mere aesthetics; it becomes a living testament to his artistic prowess, narrating stories that resonate with the soul.
Amidst his remarkable journey, Gahbrivah discovered a partner who not only resonated with his creative spirit but also stoked its flames: TECNO, a brand synonymous with innovation and technological excellence. His admiration for the brand, particularly the CAMON series, runs deep. In fact, he embarked on his artistic odyssey armed with the very first device in the CAMON series, and the power of its camera became the catalyst propelling his creativity to new heights.
Today, Gahbrivah graciously shares his insights and experiences in a profound conversation that weaves together art, technology, and the tireless pursuit of inspiration.
Interviewer: Can you introduce yourself to our readers?
Gahbrivah: Certainly, my name is Gbenga Gabriel, and I’m the proud owner of a brand. I’m an artist, a contemporary artist, to be precise. You could call me a modern-day contemporary artist. I specialize in murals, doodles, graffiti—virtually anything related to visual art. I’ve been immersed in the world of murals for approximately a decade now. Interestingly, I often find inspiration in empty spaces; they seem to beckon to me.
Interviewer: Why did you choose TECNO as your partner?
Gahbrivah: My affinity for the TECNO brand has deep roots. I’ve admired the TECNO brand for a significant period of time, even from the days of their very first camera phone. Their cameras consistently offer outstanding quality. When the Doodle edition came along, it felt like a natural fit to collaborate with TECNO. Moreover, TECNO has always been a brand that inspires me, especially given that my favorite color is blue, coincidentally the brand’s color as well.
Interviewer: Could you share your creative process for the Doodle art you created for TECNO?
Gahbrivah: Certainly. When infusing your art with a brand, it’s vital for the story to align with the brand’s products and values. TECNO is known for being a fun brand, so the design needed to reflect that spirit. The Doodle art I created is deeply rooted in African culture, with elements that pay homage to Lagos, its culture, and, of course, the TECNO brand. When you look at the design, you’ll notice the Lagos Island bridge, images related to the iconic danfo bus, and characters that resonate with both the state and the brand’s products.
Interviewer: Who has been your greatest influence and source of inspiration?
Gahbrivah: Without a doubt, I believe that God is the greatest artist of all. The inspiration I draw from nature, from the spaces that surround us, fuels my creative ideas and ideologies. It’s a constant wellspring of creativity for me.
Interviewer: What are your aspirations and ultimate goals as an artist?
Gahbrivah: My aspirations are grand. I envision establishing the largest art industry in Africa, if not the world. I want to serve as a wellspring of inspiration for up-and-coming artists and creatives worldwide. It’s a lofty goal, but it’s what keeps me motivated and driven.
