Studio visit with Chigozie Obi for INTERSECTIONS

Studio visit with Chigozie Obi for INTERSECTIONS; a group exhibition with four contemporary Nigerian artists.

The artists’ work explores themes around the paradox and consequence of choice, the importance of documentation, and dares to challenge societal stereotypes.

In this series, “I am not really trying to get the resemblance in the sense of all the people I am painting, more like just their essence” – Chigozie Obi

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