A curatorial note states: "Considering the fact that Nyemike and his style have evolved through the years of practice and showing in exhibitions in major cities around the world including Europe, Middle East, UK and America it doesn’t come as a surprise that his paintings can be found in private collections of prominent citizens worldwide.

 "Exodus is synonymous with Nyemike’s artistic evolution, from his experimental/figurative platform he sprouted the distinctively unique style of Elegant urban decay. Once again we see today a style driven on progressive transitional journey using text and patterns ingeniously to project his thoughts onto canvas and also to embellish.

 "The evolution of art is a result of experimentalists of the art world, a mind class of artists, which Nyemike over the years has proven to belong to."
