King Jacob is a multidisciplinary self-taught artist from Enugu, Nigeria. He was diagnosed with dyslexia from an early age. As a response to this, he started to explore painting as an alternative communication tool. By portraying his emotions on the canvas, the obstacles present in written language, disappear.

Through diverse forms of material expression, such as designing, making handmade leather crafts and jewellery, he creates mixed media artworks which combine his artistic knowledge with his unique way of perceiving the world.

In October 2021, King founded the “afro-evangelism art” movement, which aims on utilising the beauty of art to preach a message of love and stir up spiritual enlightenment in the mind of his viewers.
