Featured Student Artists: Emmanuel Oluwaseyi Bamtefa

The Architecture, Design, and Art Library encourages student artists to apply for a chance to exhibit their work inside the library. Student exhibits run for three months and are archived in the UH Digital Library.

This week, we will feature student artists whose work was selected for exhibition.

Emmanuel Oluwaseyi Bamtefa is a visual artist from Brooklyn, of Yoruba descent. He has been an active artist since 2012 and is interested in portraiture and figure painting. Bamtefa also likes to play with scale to see how viewers respond to colors in any given space. Bamtefa originally studied architecture but switched to the School of Art’s painting program at the University of Houston. After graduation, he intends to continue his architecture path.
