Kelvin Okafor

Believe it or not, this beautiful portrait of British singer-songwriter and guitarist Corinne Bailey Rae is a drawing by London-based artist Kelvin Okafor, using graphite pencils, black chalk and black coloured pencil on acid-free cartridge paper, size 13 x 17 inches. His latest exhibition opens at the Science Museum in London on Thursday, according to a BBC News video (CLICK). The Science Museum website hasn't been updated at the time of writing and its search facility couldn't find Kelvin Okafor! Groan! This is the trouble with overly complicated websites. They need a programmer to update them. Even its blog takes ages to load. I've emailed the museum and will update this post if I get a reply.
Update: Kelvin Okafar's drawings are to be found in the Watercolours + Works on Paper Art Fair at the Science Museum from 31 January to 3 February, entry £15 (CLICK).

Saw the same BBC report, and found your blog while trying to find out more. A bit more googling led me to this:

Hi, Andrew

Thank you very much for this link. I overlooked it because the BBC video gave the impression that this was a one-man show. Kelvin Okafor has accounts on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Blogger, but none of them helped. He needs his own dedicated website.

I also had a swift reply from the Science Museum's Information Team. It came in while I was updating my blog with the link you kindly sent me. Thanks again.
