Ebong Ekwere
Untilted Sculpture (Wood) © 2019 4.4feet

Ebong Ekwere (b. 1961) attended Yaba College of Technology, Lagos, where he graduated in 1985 with a Higher National Diploma in fine arts, majoring in sculpture.

Ekwere works with wood and metal in two broad representational styles; an academic mode through which he produces striking portraits of Nigerian personages, and a more stylized expression, in which he exaggerates several facets of his figures to achieve rhythm and movement.

Ekwere is also a gifted draughtsman, and his work has been exhibited extensively in Nigeria and abroad.
