Ozoemena Nzubechukwu

Ozoemena Nzubechukwu (b. 1999) is a visual artist working from Benin, Nigeria.

He is a self taught painter currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Architecture at the University of Benin, Nigeria. He is greatly influenced by ancestry, familial patterns, and lived experiences.

Nzubechukwu is inspired by artists such as Jennifer Packer, Austin Uzor, and kudzanai- Violet Hwami. With a mildly textured layout of paint and roughly scribbled text, he tries to pull the viewer into the complexities and similarities of regular human life, activities and interactions leaving the viewer nostalgic, wanting more.

Nzubechukwu’s works have been shown at group exhibitions such as Stop; listen, CFHILL Art Space Stockholm, Sweden (2020).
