Timothy Orikri is a painter from Nigeria who's inspired by Detroit and calls it his adopted home. He uses his brush to paint landscapes, portraits, flowers, abstract and realistic works on how he sees the city - vibrant, lovingly adorned and growing. Orikri is a prolific and passionate painter. A glib and intelligent speaker with a happiness that naturally spreads through the crowd. Your chance to see him conduct a live painting experience happens this Saturday and next at the Detroit Public Library - Main Branch on Woodward.
