Hamza Abdulhamid

My name is Hamza Abdulhamid. I was born in 20 September 1968 in Kano State-Nigeria. I attended my primary school in Gadanya Primary School (1980) then went to Government Technical College Wudil (1985). I had my Ordinary National Diploma in (1992) and Higher National Diploma (2005) all from Industrial Arts and Design Department, Kano State Polytechnic-School of Technology. I am  a member of (SNA) Society of Nigerian Artist.

I currently work with Bayero University, Kano (BUK Press) as Graphic Designer. Besides my artistic trainings, I attended courses in publishing with Nigerians Publisher Association (NPA)-Ibadan and numerous workshops organized by (NMEC) National Commission for Mass Literacy, Adult and Non-Formal Education-ABUJA.

I was commissioned to design and illustrate NMEC’s literacy primers in three major Nigerian languages namely Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba.

My approach to art: Art to me is a passion, I enjoy seeing people appreciating my works, presently I’m trying to find ways that I can monetize my artistic skills and also to help young raising artist do so.
