Inside the Colorful Creative World of Osa Seven
The pioneering urban artist designed the Hennessy Very Special limited edition carafe for Hennessy Artistry Nigeria.
“Opening doors” is what artist Osa Seven is all about. “We paint words that will inspire people, like ‘joy’, ‘happiness’, ‘collaboration’, and ‘peace’ — words that will take hold in their subconscious,” the artist said.
For the 10th anniversary of Hennessy Artistry Nigeria, Osa Seven transposed his signature to a limited-edition carafe, capping a decade of dynamic collaborations between the House and emerging talents on the country’s effervescent urban culture scene, spanning music, visual innovation and taste experiences.

A native of Festac Town, Lagos, Osa Seven weaves local storytelling into his art, from his earliest drawings to the monumental urban art that has won him wide acclaim. A pioneer in blending visual art, music and dance, he is committed to affecting positive change through artistic collaborations on a community level.
For Hennessy Very Special, Osa Seven’s Pop Art-inflected motif incorporates Hennessy hallmarks like the broad-axe with a “7” logo that reflects his vibrant aesthetic. An electric fusion of urban culture, heritage, and community spirit, it mirrors perfectly the trailblazing ethos of Hennessy Artistry’s global concept.
Though his work may be local, Osa Seven’s creative vision — like Hennessy’s — is 100% global.
