Collins Obijiaku
Lives & Works in Abuja, Nigeria
Using charcoal, paint and his distinct style of draughtsmanship, Collins Obijiaku maps out the contour lines of his figures, “exposing the very essence of his subjects' forms”, and revealing the contours of the Self that are most innate, yet deeply misunderstood. Strikingly aware, Obijiaku’s works challenge the audience's predisposed notions of portraiture, by treating it as a profoundly reflective genre.
Collins Obijiaku will be presented by Luce Gallery.
