Abinoro Akporode Collins (b. 1984), attended the School of Art and Design, Auchi Polytechnic in Edo State. There he obtained his National Diploma (ND) in painting and general art (2009). Then graduated with a Higher Diploma (HND) in sculpture (2012) as the overall best graduating student. 

Cutlery (spoons and forks ) has constantly been a medium he experimented for 8 years. With it, he has achieved unimaginable sculptures clearly depicting mind blowing forms and details in his work yet been able to twist his subjects to engage issues in his environment.

He draws inspiration from his environment, depicting these experiences with his sculptures rendered in stainless steel cutlery, fire glass and bronze. His art is a mixture of both classical, highly conceptualized and repurposed materials. By repurposing materials, he gives new meaning to the materials without having to allow them to be worn out or discarded.
