Today we’d like to introduce you to Nnamdi Augustine.
Nnamdi, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started drawing when I was three years old of age. At first, my parents never liked the idea I wanted to be an artist. My mum suggested I go into nutrition while my Dad suggested Law. I was strong-willed that I was bent on Art and nothing else. Starting from primary education to tertiary I practiced Art all through. Today my art is delving towards creating an enabling environment for all.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not been smooth especially after I lost my mum to a car crash in the year 2000. I found it difficult to ask anyone for help because no one could understand me like her. In college, I couldn’t afford my own art materials. I slept in the classroom studio because I couldn’t pay for accommodation. I could barely afford paying my school fees. No one saw reasons of supporting me in art. It was terrible.
Please tell us about Metier Mode Resources.
Art is life, I specialize in branding, interior decorations and general contracts. Mainly my art is more of upcycling now turning waste to wealthy looking works for beautification. My company evolves to be better by allowing innovative ideas to be tried and pushed in for analysis. I’m proud of my company because it is the real deal now.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite memory as a child is pictures on display during Christmas holidays, the Thanksgiving and the love shared among family friends and well-wishers.
