Lives & Works in Port-Harcourt, Nigeria
Chiderah Bosah investigates internal dialogues with the self through contemporary portraits that examine the human spirit, and how humanity is revealed externally in powerful and captivating expressions. Bosah’s artistic practice spans across figurative representation, simplified realism, and portraiture. Using a sophisticated palette of saturated yet calming hues, Bosah creates images of people he sees daily, in minimalistic dreamlike voids, as a means to depict the complex lives of his community.  Through his distinctive paintings, Bosah conveys compelling narratives, giving a voice to the people he paints, depicting their strength and resilience in the face of adversity. Bosah's works have been displayed at major fairs and exhibited both locally and internationally, solidifying his reputation as a rising talent in the contemporary art scene.
