With a driving force of an imagination, field by personal perception Daniel sees fantasy as a foundation of his creations, “Growing up I was an ardent bookworm and addict to fantasy stories, I remember after school session I and my best friend would run to the post office with the money we had saved to buy these old novels about adventure, mystery and yea romance. It was really a yearly routine and every time we read these books the visuals always seemed to live on in my mind.” - http://afrobougee.com/daniel-obasi.html
