Chigozie Obi

Chigozie Obi (b.1997) is a multi-dimensional visual artist who obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts from the University of Lagos in 2017.

Her work explores forms and experiments with the layering of multiple materials to tell stories formed from personal, societal experiences, focusing on the representation of African people in their diversity.

Obi’s work authenticates her keen interest for the human aspect of life, the body, beauty
standards and the strive for self-acceptance. She aims to create sustained
conversations about people and society – the cultural narratives adopted and how it
affects people in it, especially women.

Obi has recently emerged as the winner of the Access Bank Art X prize 2021 and has participated in group exhibitions including Shyllon Museum, (The Invincible Hands) Lagos, 2021, Thinkspace Projects (Real Life Is Fragile) Los Angeles(USA) 2021. She has completed residency programmes with Bethany Arts Community, New York (2020) and was also selected as Arthouse Contemporary’s Artist of the month in 2018.
