Mr.Oreke discovered pictorial arts through the practice of graffiti, in the early 2000s. Using his spray cans, he first adorned walls with his colourful drawings before making them on canvas. First close to abstraction, the painter started to add male and female portraits to his artworks a few years later. 
The signature of Mr.Oreke lies in its backgrounds, he essentially works with spray paint as in graffiti art. Once the canvas is filled with the paint sprayed, the artist additionally mixes ink, acrylic, and pastel. His characters come then to complete the whole and thus to improve the often humorous story which the painter wanted to tell. 
Described by the artist as "Street Pop Art", his style is resolutely contemporary, full of energy and fantasy. Always powerfully colourful, the graphic compositions of Mr.Oreke are inspired both by the artistic style developed by the initiators of the Pop Art movement and by the aesthetics of American comics of the 50s and 60s. The frequent use of drips, the large proportion given to typographical characters and the occasional insertion of collages amplify the dynamism of his works and enhance the ‘comic book’ look of his creations.
