The Art Department | World Tour

Based in Lagos, Nigeria, digital artist Godwin Akpan is a true testament of how far you self-teaching and pure determination can take you. Also having a college degree for art, Godwin though attributes most of his learning and skills-polishing to online resources such as YouTube tutorials and Schoolism courses.

The result? He now works full-time as an illustrator and concept artist creating breath-taking designs for companies like Anthill, Youneek, Triggerfish and Silverrain Games in partnership with EA originals.

Godwin is currently working on Iwaju – a collaboration between Disney and Kugali.

At The Art Department | World Tour we’ll dive into his journey and also talk about the creative industry in Nigeria in an in-depth interview.
