Lagos based graphic designer Ola Olowu has created a stunning piece of work based on old Nigerian mythology. The recently released graphic novel Man, Myth and Legend – Shàngó, is a visual feast. It tells the Youruba mythology of Shàngó, god of thunder and legendary king of the Oyo Kingdom.

Having studied design in Toronto and worked in London, Olowu works as creative director for design studio DDB Lagos.
