Dampers, whose skills are self-taught, discovered his talents way back in junior school. His love for wildlife films further endeared him to the art of scribbling with brush on paper.
In an interview with Standard Style seen by Legit.ng, the talented young man said his artworks highlight the beauty and splendor inherent in wildlife.
