"Okafor is one of the very best draughtsmen working today. "A pencil artist", who draws portraits. The word 'portrait' comes from the Latin protrahere, meaning to draw forth; to bring to light; to portray. This is what Okafor does, sculpting a face on a piece of paper out of light and shadow, highlighted by extreme reductive tones, like a great master."
