Claire Idera

Claire (b.1994) in Lagos Nigeria. She is a self taught visual artist with a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture and a Masters degree in Fashion Design from Kingston University London.

While her creative background forms her artistic processes, She creates delicate representations of the young black woman who is in a transformative state of introspection.

Claire work centers around her personal journals from childhood to motherhood, portraiture and ethereal aesthetics. She is fascinated by the idea of identity and the role growth plays in finding it. With every painting, she attempts to relate the physical and mental metamorphosis about the female being using whimsical elements and colors. She works with a range of materials from oil to watercolour to acrylic and plastic.

Claire has participated in group exhibitions worldwide including, Rele Gallery (Group Exhibition) Lagos 2018, For you Gallery (Phenomenology of a black woman) Dubai,2021. She was also nominated for the Future Awards, Culture & Arts category in 2016.
